The Mrs., if you didn't already know, is a fantastic opera singer, and she has come together with a similarly talented group of singers/actors (and just damn nice people, too) to form an Opera Ensemble, if you were similarly unaware. They are currently busting their rear-ends to perfect a production of Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte for performances in Junes (see information below). What follows is the details copied/pasted from the Facebook event I created for the performances, but I was long-winded enough that I wanted to drop it in here, to catch anyone who might not have got the invite for whatever reason.
This is the cultural event of the season, if not the year, for the Tri-state area. A fully staged opera performed in the open air of HCC's ampitheatre. Surrounded by trees you will be nestled in stadium-style seating (every seat is a good seat!) to watch professional opera performers sing and act out the story of two pairs of lovers and the ridiculous scheming that occurs so that the guys can win a bet with their mentor that all women "are just like that."
It's sung in Italian and there will be sub-titles projected above the stage in English.
On a personal note, I've seen this opera performed before, and I've been to a few rehearsals for this specific production. It's going to be hilarious as well as musically fantastic. The last production that Hub Opera performed made the front page of the Herald-Mail, and this show is just as good if not better. What I'm trying to say is: COME!
The performances dates are:
Friday June 10 @ 8pm
Saturday June 11 @ 8pm
Friday June 17 @ 8pm
Saturday June 18 @ 8pm
It's outside, so the two rain dates are:
Sunday June 12 @ 7pm
Sunday June 19 @ 7pm
At the Door:
