The Marriage of Figaro
Blaisdell Concert Hall
Feb 14-18, 2020
Happily ever after can be a challenging, but funny, road
If you prefer tears of laughter, this is your opera!
Part chaos, a dash of beauty, and a healthy dose of comedy combine with beautiful melodies to create Mozart’s most beloved opera about two young servants trying to get married despite the mischievous machinations of the royal couple they serve.
Servants to the Count and Countess Almaviva, Figaro and Susanna are in love and betrothed, but, as with all of opera’s love stories, there’s a catch – The adulterous Count is also in lust with Susanna and keen to exercise his “droit du seigneur”. Determined to teach the Count a lesson, Susanna, Figaro, and the Countess conspire with other members of the household to bring the Count to his knees…literally…in Mozart’s delightful comic opera, an entertaining romp from overture to finale.
Starring Ryan Kuster (Figaro), a fast rising star and former San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow. Mr. Kuster has been critically acclaimed for a “full and rich voice” (The Dallas Observer), a “commanding stage presence” (Arts Knoxville), and “at the beginning of an important career” (Opera Warhorses); Another recent Adler Fellow, Amina Edris, stars as Susanna. Of Ms. Edris, The San Francisco Chronicle writes, “boasts plenty of vocal power and presence, as well as a wealth of vocal coloration…”.
Edward Parks (Count Almaviva), and Mané Galoyan (Countess Almaviva) join them, all in their HOT Debuts under the baton of David Angus and directed by Tara Faircloth.
