The Abduction from the Seraglio
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
September 29th & 30th
October 6th & 7th
Mozart ushered in a new era in music history with this first of his operatic masterpieces. It tells of the rescue of the young Spaniard Konstanze and her English maid Blonde by their fiancés Belmonte and Pedrillo from the Ottoman Palace of Pasha Selim and his ferocious henchman, Osmin. Mozart transcends the popular “Turkish Music” fashion of the time with an opera of great emotional depth, combined with lighthearted scenes of hilarious comedy. Virtuoso singing and brilliant orchestration previously unheard in Vienna prompted Emperor Joseph II (of movie Amadeus fame) to exclaim “Too many notes!”
Pre-performance Talk by Linda Riebel, PhD, one hour before each curtain.

The Barber of Seville
By Gioachino Rossini
March 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th
Based on Beaumarchais’ classic French comedy, the opera tells of the clever barber Figaro and how he assists the noble Count Almaviva in winning the hand of his beloved Rosina by outwitting her lecherous guardian, Doctor Bartolo. Riotous comedy, memorable arias and spectacular ensembles abound in what is arguably the greatest Italian opera buffa ever written. Of Barber, Beethoven told Rossini: “I congratulate you. It will be played as long as Italian opera exists”.
