What is Pippin – 50th Anniversary Concert about?
Featuring a 20-piece orchestra and 50-strong choir, Pippin – 50th Anniversary Concert showcases the iconic score from the classic musical. Featuring Simple Joys, Glory and Magic to Do, the award-winning music was created by four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz.
A soul-searching exploration of one man’s journey to find himself, the young prince Pippin is on the hunt for true happiness and fulfilment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavours, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
