Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson teamed up for the first time to create this delightful romantic comedy. First performed in 1938 with Walter Huston in the role of Peter Stuyvesant, the work is one of Weill's deft hybrid theater pieces which lies somewhere between operetta and musical theater, and also contains bits of political satire. The famous pop standard "September Song" first appeared in "Knickerbocker Holiday". The cast includes Victor Garber as Stuyvesant, Ben Davis as Brom, Bryce Pinkham as Washington Irving, David Garrison as Tienhoven, Kelli O'Hara as love interest Tina, and Christopher Fitzgerald as faithful sidekick Tenpin. The production is directed by Ted Sperling and conducted by James Bagwell with The Collegiate Chorale and the American Symphony Orchestra.
The Collegiate Chorale's 69th season continues with "We Remember Them: Choral Music from the Camps and the Ghettos" on March 10, 2011 at 7pm at Central Synagogue, and "Something Wonderful - A Night of Broadway with Deborah Voigt", conducted by Ted Sperling, on May 19, 2011 at 7pm at Carnegie Hall. Deborah Voigt will be joined by featured guest artist Paulo Szot.
