Opera with a sense of humor!

Oct 18, 2017

Austin Powers meets Rossini ! 007 spoof! Opera's not in Kansas anymore... Is Rossini a proto-feminist? A spunky Italian girl on a one-woman mission (forget the damsel in distress) to save her spy-boyfriend from the evil bey/sultan n' his harem of long-suffering Muslim women: FUN costume/choreography. Opera in 21st century: good voices are no longer enough (forget Pavarotti/Caballé like sumo wrestlers in their love scenes...); singers have to work with stage directors/dance coaches in addition to music conductors, yet trying to satisfy purists and modernists alike. A presentation of the Pesaro Festival, Rossini's birth place.
