The Mighty Casey

William Schuman

In a gentler time, before steroids and $10 beers, life was simpler and baseball was a source for wholesome family outings and civic pride.  The Mighty Casey brings this nostalgic era to life through a musical and dramatic setting of the quintessential American poem “Casey at the Bat.”  This summer, forget Fenway and the Bronx:  join Opera Saratoga to revisit the era when baseball was our true national pastime.

The Mighty CaseySung in English with English translations projected above the stage.

Free pre-opera talk in the theater one hour before each performance.
