Mozart at CCLIV


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
The Marriage of Figaro
APRIL 24 - MAY 1, 2010

"...the work shines like new. Seldom has Mozart's Figaro seemed so fresh and its comedy so sublime."
— Christopher Hoile, Eye Weekly


Mozart’s commedia dell’arte inspired opera had its premiere in 1786 and was an instant success. Based on the shocking Beaumarchais play The Marriage of Figaro, Mozart’s racy tale of love, betrayal and forgiveness is a hilarious and subversive social commentary about a world on the brink of revolution. Opera Atelier is thrilled to unveil a brand new production for our 09/10 season, in which baritone
Olivier Laquerre makes his role debut as the incorrigible Figaro. OA is pleased to announce the company debut of baritone Phillip Addis* and mezzo soprano Wallis Giunta*. The Marriage of Figaro also stars OA favourites Carla Huhtanen, Peggy Kriha Dye, Laura Pudwell, and Curtis Sullivan with Artists of Atelier Ballet, and the incomparable Tafelmusik Orchestra under the baton of conductor David Fallis.
