Impresario Now! 90% Theater, 90% Musicale, Very Mozart Most of the Time.
A full-tilt boffo, buffo mash-up, with a sparkling new English script. This spoof features the original four tunes and beloved Italian oldies from Figaro, Don G and Cosi by that hitmeister of the 1780’s top forty charts, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Enjoy Mozart’s comic singspiel Der Schauspieldirektor with fashionista costumes, dueling sopranos, battling baritones, a libidinous backer and one very broke producer.
You’ll meet, and learn to love and loathe: Vinnie Birdwhistle – Heartbroken Tenor, sopranos Isolde Goldentrill and Swanhilda Silverspiel – one on the way up, one on the way out, Drusilla Kronensprech – a Mezzo with a Method, as well as Donaldo Largesse Angelgelt, Swifty Frank and his Faithless Companion Buddenbrooks Buff, Frederico Goldentrill Barihunk Trouble Incarnate, and Tristana Straight, all weird in their own way. You won’t see Wolftreudle Birdwhistle but you’ll find out why.
Before and after the 70 minute chamber opera and included in the price of admission, starting at curtain-time, are a pre-performance talk with the artistic staff and a post-performance talk-back with the cast. These events will be moderated by a member of the Boston classical music scene – Richard Dyer, a long-time music critic for The Boston Globe. Audience participation encouraged.
A limited number of $10 student seats (with IDs) will be sold. Otherwise, $5 will be added to each ticket purchase if buying at the door on the day of the event to total $25.
