About this event

Amherst Glebe Arts Response, Inc. (AGAR) presents A Perfect Relationship: musical theater songs and duets. The program highlights the work of Kander and Ebb, Stephen Sondheim and Kurt Weill. Also featured are scenes by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jule Styne and Eric Idle, writer of the Monty Python musical, Spamalot.

The program shares its title with Jule Styne’s song, “A Perfect Relationship,” from Bells Are Ringing. “Ironic wit, situational comedy and double entendre have always been features of the American Musical,” says Williamson. “The balance of humor and lyricism, of entertainment and drama help make the musical comedy the beloved form of live art it is. Our program aims to reflect different colors of this prism, from classic ballads like Weill’s “September Song” to contemporary classics such as Sondheim’s “Ladies who Lunch,” Williamson added.

In addition to those mentioned above, songs from Weill’s Lady in the Dark, Kander & Ebb’s Cabaret, Sondheim’s Into the Woods and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Flower Drum Song round out the program.

Familiar to AGAR audiences since the 2015 premiere of Aaron Garber’s opera, Romania: Revolution 1989, Williamson has also appeared in central Virginia singing song cycles by Schubert, Schumann and Britten. Asherah Capellaro most recently appeared in AGAR’s 2019 workshops of the full-length version of Garber’s opera. The Strasburg, VA native is also a conductor and pianist, and a graduate of Westminster Choir College. Bedford native C. W. Markham is a beloved pianist and arts administrator across the region, making his AGAR debut with this program.
