Event description

Description

Apotheosis Opera presents its third summer production - Richard Strauss' Capriccio! A fully-staged production with full orchestra, presented in English translation.

The last opera by one of the longest lived composers in history, Capriccioallows us to turn the tables on our audience, and give a glimpse of life in the theater from the other side of the curtain. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), what happens behind the scenes is filled with as much drama and comedy as what takes place on stage! The plot revolves around the Countess - a supporter of the arts just like you - and her courtship by both a composer and a playwright [poet?]. In choosing one over the other, she plans to answer this age-old question: which is more important to opera, the music or the words?
