An adventure comedy set in an exotic locale, featuring a daring escape, a comedic clash of cultures and a couple of savvy, strong-willed women. The latest Hollywood blockbuster? Actually, it was the operatic hit of 1782. A Spanish nobleman sets out to rescue his beloved from the clutches of a tenacious Turk in this wonderfully witty tale, set to Mozart’s sparkling and exuberant score.
An enchanting new production features a world-class cast led by soprano Mary Dunleavy, the remarkable Gilda in San Francisco Opera’s Rigoletto (2006), and Metropolitan Opera tenor Matthew Polenzani, who possesses a “dulcet lyric voice ideally suited to Mozart,” according to The New York Times.
