The past two summers, the Central City Opera has diverged from its opera-only lineup to perform highly stylized musicals as well. This year’s theater pick is Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 show, A Little Night Music. Set to a waltzy, Ingmar Bergmanâ€“inspired score, the Tony Awardâ€“winning musical tells the story of several Swedish couples and their perceptions of life, love, and sex. The foothills production, which stars Myrna Paris, a veteran of Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, promises a performance that, like the topics it tackles, is at once compassionate and humorous. July 4-31. Days and times vary. $50-$99 Central City Opera, 124 Eureka St., Central City, 303-292-6700 More like it: Il Divo, Mon, Jul 13 | Colorado Shakespeare Festival, through August 15
