Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro"

  • Mason United Methodist Church 2710 N Madison St Tacoma, WA (map)

Introducing a modern adaptation of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro. This comedic masterpiece is set in modern English and is a great way to experience opera in an intimate setting. Come see how Figaro (Julian Riesenthel) and Susanna (Erin White) deal not only with the craziness of their own wedding day, but also with Count Almaviva (Ryan Bede) trying to exploit his social status and rite of lordship, which is where a nobleman had the right to sleep with a newly wedded bride first on the night of their wedding. Figaro, Susanna, and Countess Almaviva (Sammie Gorham) devise a plan to try to catch the Count cheating on the Countess after the newlyweds have been married. 

In addition to the singers, they will be accompanied by Collin Whitfield on piano, with stage direction by Michael Heitmann.
