A Seattle Opera Premiere!
ROLLICKING FARCE. Discover the final madcap comedy from the playful and prolific composer of The Barber of Seville and The Italian Girl in Algiers. A notorious skirt-chaser and his merry-making minions scheme their way into a medieval French castle by means of outrageous disguises, crazy coincidences, and narrow escapes. Plans are foiled, wine cellars are raided, and all is forgiven as the lusty Count presides over the chaos. Our bright, all-new production will feature an exaggerated “Pythonesque” visual style, including whimsical animations and kaleidoscopic colors to start the season with a bang.
