If you already have your tickets and are not too familiar with Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro or you want to learn a little more about this opera before you decide to attend, the Lyric Opera Guild presents At Ease with Opera presentations leading up to every Lyric Opera production. The remaining At Ease presentations for The Marriage of Figaro are in the next two weeks, so now is your chance to learn a little more about this classic comic opera, that may be a little more modern (but you didn’t hear that here).
Upcoming At Ease with Opera Presentations:
Mozart From A to Z – March 28, 2011
Join us on Monday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the Kauffman Foundation (4801 Rockhill Rd, Kansas City, MO). Bob Wise will be back on the podium to discuss “Mozart From A to Z,” containing lots of music and biographical material about the brilliant composer of The Marriage of Figaro which you might not have known.
Who Was Figaro? – April 4, 2011
Join us on Monday, April 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library (4801 Main St., Kansas City, MO). Morton Creditor, a frequent At Ease with Opera program presenter, will discuss “Who Was Figaro?,” and exploration of the writer, Beaumarchais, who created this intriguing character who appears in several different opera, including the Mozart classic. Paired with him this evening will be Don Dagenais, who will give a preview of The Marriage of Figaro.
