10/13/12 – Marriage of Figaro – 1:00pm

By WBJC Programming | Posted in Operafest | No Comments

San Francisco Opera

Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Sung in Italian
Approximate running time: 3 hours, 30 minutes including one intermission

A carnally minded count, his neglected wife, their wily servants and a young page who falls in love with every woman he sees: Mozart’s greatest comedy contains a cornucopia of wonderfully flawed and human characters who will amuse and delight you. SopranoDanielle de Niese “has a voice made for Mozart: bright, beautiful, agile and creamy” (National Public Radio). The “charismatic, vocally robust young Italian bass Luca Pisaroni…is an impulsive and charming Figaro” (The New York Times).

Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts this perfectly cast production with glamorous soprano Ellie Dehn as the Countess and former Adler Fellow Lucas Meachem as her philandering husband.
