Broadway is coming to Bay Ridge.
On Feb. 6, the Regina Opera Company trades Wagner for Webber when it holds its regular “Salute to Broadway” concert.
Among the two dozen selections of Broadway and popular tunes, songs will be pulled from such classics as “Showboat,” “South Pacific” “My Fair Lady,” “West Side Story,” as well as more contemporary shows like “Les Miserables” “Jekyll and Hyde,” and “Evita.”
“I like to pick some contemporary Broadway shows, along with the classic Broadway shows,” said Regina founder Francine Garber. “It’s a nice variety.”
Still, the company can’t help but stick to its roots, as it also performs songs from the operettas “Die Fledermaus” and “Candide.”
The salute is a staple concert for the company, which puts it on a few times a year for Brooklyn’s Broadway lovers.
“People in the audience know all the words, and sometimes they hum along,” said Garber. “We don’t discourage them.”
Salute to Broadway at Regina Hall [1210 65th St. at 12th Avenue in Bay Ridge, (718) 259-2772], Feb. 6 at 3 pm. Tickets $12 ($5 for teens, free for children). For info, visit www.reginaopera.org.
