“The Marriage of Figaro”
Sept. 21 and 23. A production of Inland Northwest Opera. The opera was composed in 1786 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte, and premiered in Vienna the same year. “The Marriage of Figaro” is a comic masterpiece with more serious underlying meaning. Chaos and hilarity abound in “The Marriage of Figaro” as clever servants outwit arrogant masters and craft women outsmart foolish men, all during one wild day as they prepare for a wedding…or two. Love is a battlefield in this opera that has delighted audiences since its creation, and the plot, with themes of social class stress and sexual tension, remains relevant today. The opera will be sung in Italian with English supertitles on a screen above the stage. Showtime is Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
