About The Marriage of Figaro:
Figaro and Susanna thwart the amorous tendencies of the count, and Mozart lays bare the struggles between the classes. Tuneful and rollicking, this is that rare comedy that shows us our humanity even as it entertains us.
About The Tragedy of Carmen:
Peter Brook’s acclaimed chamber adaptation strips the story of Carmen to its emotional core. This taut psycho-drama is great opera and dynamic theater all at once. With jealousies ignited and passions exploding, Carmen’s lust for life leads down a deadly path. You’ll hear all the famous arias and get to know our heroine in a whole new way.
Verdi takes Shakespeare to an operatic level with one of the most complex relationships ever to haunt the stage. Consumed by the promise of political power, and propelled by his ambitious wife, Macbeth gets caught in a murderous web to claim the Scottish throne. But instead of great power, blind ambition leads only to madness and destruction.
