MSU Opera Theatre and Chamber Orchestra presents La Finta Giardiniera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
(Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))
La Finta Giardiniera, written by Mozart at age 18, has only recently found a place in the standard operatic repertoire. The plot involves disguised countesses, lusty mayors, frustrated servants and long-lost lovers, all surrounded by Mozarts confectionary music. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. A preview lecture will be held 45 minutes before each performance.
