The Marriage of Figaro Free Simulcast at Klyde Warren Park, Friday, October 24
Join us for an evening of free opera under the stars!
The Dallas Opera, in partnership with Klyde Warren Park, presents The Marriage of Figaro, simulcast live from the Winspear Opera House to the Park on Friday, October 24, 2014!
We are able to host this special presentation with the generous support of underwriters The Sheila and Jody Grant Opera Discovery Program with support from The AT&T Performing Arts Center.
The action begins at 6:30pm, co-hosted by KLUV Radio’s legendary on-air personality Jody Dean and one of our most popular guest speakers, University of North Texas Associate Professor and Music Director of UNT Opera Dr. Stephen Dubberly! Special features include a screening of the 1945 Three Stooges classic “Micro-Phonies”, the “Worst Bridesmaid’s Dress Ever” contest, a bouquet toss, and more!
The Linda and Mitch Hart Season Opening Night Performance of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro offers some of the most memorable music ever written by the musical genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and a touchingly funny story about the antics surrounding Figaro’s imminent marriage to his beloved Susanna. Count Almaviva, who has eyes for his servant’s fiancée, is set up by his wife and the bride-to-be who expose his adulterous plans. Abounding in crazy plot devices and disguises, the truth is finally revealed, lovers restored, and all is forgiven. Fabulous music, a leisurely outdoor setting and an incredible cast headed by Italian bass-baritone Mirco Palazzi as Figaro, hold the promise of a very special evening in the park!
