Mark Adamo's operatic adaptation of the beloved classic LITTLE WOMEN has been a remarkable success, including a PBS "Great Performances" television special in 2001, and much critical acclaim. The LARGER THAN LIFE personality and the emotional journey of irrepressible, outspoken Jo March makes this new production, starring our Resident Artists, a must-add to your season plans. Capacity is limited; order now. 

• Sung in the original English with projected English titles
• All performances at CAPA Theater
