A huge hit when it premiered in New York in 1903, Victor Herbert’s Babes in Toyland has been the inspiration for countless movies and performances, but hasn’t seen a major revival in New York City in over 85 years. On April 27 at Carnegie Hall, MasterVoices will present the original score in its full orchestration, including beloved songs “Toyland”, “March of the Toys”, and “I Can’t Do the Sum”, with an all-star Broadway cast, the 130 singers of MasterVoices, and Orchestra of St. Luke's, led by Ted Sperling. Don't miss the rare chance to experience this musical extravaganza afresh!
MasterVoices’ Babes in Toyland is recommended for ages 8 and up.
