“Figaro! Figaro! Fiiiii-gaa-roo!”
When true love needs a helping hand, who you gonna call?

Seville’s most famous barber takes center stage as a jack-of-all-trades turned matchmaker in one of the funniest, most familiar and energetic operas ever written. Will the young and handsome Count win the hand of beautiful Rosina? Or will the devious Dr. Bartolo trick her into marriage? A madcap comedy of mistaken identities, dubious disguises and merry misunderstandings filled with memorable melodies (including the famous overture that inspired Looney Tunes’ Bugs Bunny cartoon the “Rabbit of Seville”) Happy ending guaranteed!

Performed in Italian with English supertitles

“A telenovela set to music”

The life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is the stuff of legend. Wracked by agonizing physical pain and caught up in a stormy marriage to famed muralist, Diego Rivera, the flame that fueled Kahlo’s art kept burning bright. She painted fifty-five self-portraits, but no portrait is more revealing than the one in this opera. Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s colorful music is a pitch perfect match for the woman, her art and her passionate life with its fusion of opera, Mariachi-style orchestration, Mexican folkloric music, Broadway and musical theater. Critics and audiences across America and throughout Europe have fallen in love with Frida…and you will too!

“All’s fair in love and war”

Step into a web of politics, police brutality, betrayal and jealousy! Set against a backdrop of war, chaos and corruption in Rome, the beautiful, celebrated singer, Floria Tosca, must give the performance of a lifetime to save the man she loves from the tainted hands of the treacherous chief of police. Will she murder for the man she loves? Will she save her lover in time? Will she emerge as the victor or victim of her own destiny? Puccini’s sumptuous tale of ill-fated love captivates new and longtime opera lovers alike. With passionate arias and soaring, sensuous melodies, Tosca’s power and raw emotion will leave you breathless.
