Really a very professional performance for a local, small troupe. Wish more people would try these types of performances to help support. Show was amusing and excellent singers. Comedic opera is great for the beginner like me. Easy to understand with the captions.
Conductor: Barbara Day Turner
Director: Douglas Nagel
In 1700s Naples, Don Alfonso convinces two young officers, Ferrando and Guglielmo, to test the faithfulness of their girlfriends, Dorabella and Fiordiligi. Mozart wrote some of his most sublime operatic music for Così fan tutte, as he and master librettist Lorenzo da Ponte poked fun at a practice well known to the Viennese Court—girlfriend (and boyfriend) swapping. It’s betrayal of love, with a happy ending.
About the Ticket Supplier: West Bay Opera
Performing both the familiar and the adventurous, West Bay Opera seeks to please and challenge singers and audiences with three productions per season, one each in October, February, and May. The repertoire includes standard popular works, lesser-known operas and operettas, and occasionally operas by modern composers. Some of West Bay Opera’s greatest successes result from undertaking formidable artistic challenges. Past accomplishments include Bellini’s rarely-performed Norma, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in the original Russian, and Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer. The principal consideration is always to give talented young opera singers an opportunity to perform challenging roles and, in turn, to give audiences the pleasure of hearing these singers on their way to fame.
