Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer | Lorenzo Da Ponte, librettist | William Lumpkin, conductor | David Paul, stage director
Aristocratic privilege exists throughout time and across cultures. As revolutionaries in their era, Beaumarchais and Mozart created both a provocative play and witty opera to pointedly, yet playfully, mock the hereditary principal associated with nobility prior to the French Revolution. Imagined through a contemporary lens, this production accentuates the opera's relevance in the 21st century and the continuing struggle between the classes. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
