Do I Hear a Waltz?, is a rarely-performed 1965 musical set in Venice. Music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents.
Highlights from it will be performed – by the Nash Ensemble of London with Kim Criswell, Louise Dearman, and William Burden (conducted by David Childs) – is to be performed at the Wigmore Hall on Saturday the 8th March at 7:30 pm. The concert also features other music by Rodgers. This is claimed to be the first West End performance. There was a concert performance in London in 1997.
Do I hear another waltz? Coincidentally, there is a series of performances of Do I Hear A Waltz? by the Charles Court Light Opera Company at a new theatre in Finsbury Park, The Park Theatre, opened in May 2013, (the construction of which was financed by clever use of air rights), and which has shows running from 5th – 30th March.
