Music by W.A. Mozart; Libretto by Vid Guerrerio, based on The Marriage of Figaro by Lorenzo da Ponte
Sung in English and Spanish

Eric Einhorn • Stage Director
Jorge Parodi • Music Director

Vid Guerrerio's contemporary multicultural adaptation of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro sets the action in modern-day Beverly Hills. Hollywood elite Paul and Roxanne Conti (Count Almaviva and Rosina) are now married with a daughter, and Figaro and his soon‐to‐be‐bride Susana are undocumented workers on their estate. Hailed by Opera News as "dynamic, thought‐provoking, respectful, and, yes, hilarious," Guerrerio's English and Spanish libretto infuses Mozart's masterpiece with humor, heart, and present‐day discussions of race, class, and American identity.

In Rossini's lively comic opera, a young Count Almaviva (in disguise) is wooing the spirited and savvy Rosina, Dr. Bartolo's young ward.

Music by John Corigliano; Libretto by William Hoffman
Sung in English

Peter Kazaras • Stage Director
Caitlin Lynch • Marie Antoinette
Daniel Belcher • Beaumarchais
Marco Nisticó • Louis XIV/Pasha
Aleks Romano • Samira

Marie Antoinette and her court are bored of the afterlife, and bitter about their deaths. The love-struck ghost of Beaumarchais believes he can change the queen's untimely fate by using the power of art. He brings his beloved Figaro and company back to life in a new opera, but when Figaro refuses to stick to the script, Beaumarchais must enter his own story. Alternately hilarious and heart breaking, this grand opera buffa is one of America's operatic masterpieces.
