Talk about your merry and bright -- the charm-filled Christmas musical that broke box office records on Broadway is coming to town. Based on the hit 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell, this funny and heartfelt show follows the pointy-shoed footsteps of William "Buddy" Hobbs, who was raised as an elf in Santa's workshop and grows up -- and up, and up -- before finally discovering that he's actually human. So Santa sends Buddy on a quest to meet his human family, where it turns out the happy-go-lucky guy has to help them -- and the whole city of New York -- remember the true meaning of the season.

We loved the opera. However, we are more used to traditional costuming and staging. We were pleased to see so many young people who seemed to be enjoying themselves. If this is what it takes to get young people interested that is fine with us.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Così fan tutte
Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte
Production from Seattle Opera
The School for Deceptive Lovers is now in session.
What determines true love? Is it faithfulness or simply circumstance? Mozart's whimsical Così fan tutte is the wry tale of two young men who place a bet on fidelity, putting the women they love to the test through deception and seduction… What could possibly go wrong? In this sometimes farcical, sometimes unsettling comedy, the men pretend to go off to war but return in disguise, each intent on seducing the other's lady. But when the women don't react as expected, a lesson in tempting fate is learned by all, and the fickle nature of love and attraction is revealed.
Acclaimed director Jonathan Miller's modern-dress production, "a compelling piece of music theatre, wonderful in its delineation of Mozart's mix of comedy and psychological pain" (The Guardian), captures the essence of Washington, D.C. WNO Music Director Philippe Auguin conducts Mozart's score, packed with biting comedy and poignant beauty.
These unique performances are part of WNO's ongoing access initiative to introduce new artists to Washington and new audiences to the Opera. Casting for these performances features members and alumni of the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program.
Performed in Italian with English supertitles. Supertitles may not be visible from the rear of the orchestra.
