The Marriage of Figaro
World famous Pocket Opera from San Francisco brings their production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro to the Festival stage, accompanied by the Festival Orchestra.
Hailed by the press as “triumphant,” “thrilling” and “funny,” Pocket Opera enchants audiences with innovative, unpredictable productions that aim for the heart, challenge the mind and tickle the funny bone. Superb professional singers perform original English translations of classic and lesser known operas, accompanied by the orchestra.
Founder Donald Pippin brings the story to life via his English versions of opera libretti, in which he translates the spirit of the work with complete fidelity to the composer’s musical intentions. Newcomers experience opera as congenial musical theater while die-hard aficionados have a chance to hear unfamiliar works in English
