Fields of Gold: The Music of Sting
Book by Craig Slaight
Directed by Domenique Lozano and Craig Slaight
August 16–27, 2016
From the overwhelming success of the rock band Police to his breakout solo career, Gordon Matthew Sumner, known in the music world as Sting, is one of the all-time great singer-songwriters. Part of the ongoing series of musical tributes from the A.C.T. Young Conservatory, Fields of Gold: The Music of Sting features 30 years of music, interwoven with a unique story concerning a group of Amish and non-Amish youth coming of age in the American heartland. With such hits as “Be Still My Beating Heart,” “If You Love Somebody,” “Every Breath You Take,” “Fields of Gold,” “Synchronicity,” and “When We Dance,” Sting has been a favorite of young and old alike. Join us as we celebrate the music of Sting.
Performances take place in A.C.T.’s Strand Theater, 1127 Market Street, San Francisco.
