Join us for a season of Great Escapes, as we present The Barber of Seville, The Magic Flute and Lucia di Lammermoor. Each opera demands its principal characters perform a variety of clever and cunning exits, whether it is from a lecherous old man, from magical beings or from a constrained, loveless marriage.
The escape begins in October 2014, with The Barber of Seville set on a movie studio backlot. This production originated in Vancouver, where it recently received great reviews featuring Rosina as a starlet on the silver screen, Bartolo as the studio owner and Figaro as a meddlesome hairstylist.
In February 2015, a new production of Mozart's enchanted opera, The Magic Flute, embraces a delightful, whimsical world where a dashing prince and a very lovesick birdcatcher face numerous trials in the form of a giant serpent, moody monarchs and more.
Finally, drama unfolds in April 2015 with Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor to close the season. In this bel canto masterpiece, madness is used as more than just a plot function; it plays out as a personal tragedy, a political statement and a healing ritual.
