Dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's Annual Summer Festival at Baruch Performing Arts Center
The dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's annual summer festival will be at Baruch Performing Arts Center this year! The festival will be an ambitious mounting of a trilogy based on the play "The Barber of Seville or the Useless Precaution" by Pierre Beaumarchais (1773). They will perform, in repertory, Mozart’s "Le Nozze di Figaro" (1786), "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" by Giovanni Paisiello (1782), and "Rosina" by Hiram Titus (1980). A one-night-only concert of excerpts of other works inspired by the play will also be performed. The Paisiello work pre-dates the more famous Rossini opera by more than 20 years, and now is rarely performed. "Le Nozze di Figaro": August 14, 20, 22, 27 and 29 at 7:30 p.m., August 16 at 2:00 p.m. "Il Barbiere di Siviglia": August 15, 19, and 26 at 7:30 p.m., August 22 and 29 at 2:00 p.m. "Rosina": August 17, 21 and 28 at 7:30 p.m., August 23 and 30 at 2:00 p.m. Beaumarchais Concert, featuring excerpts of other settings of the Rosina/Figaro inspired works: August 25 at 7:30 p.m. All performances will be in the Nagelberg Theatre, 55 Lexington Avenue (entrance on 25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues). Tickets are $38 (orchestra), $22 (balcony) for adults, $20 for students, and group rates are available for parties of six or more. Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased by calling (212) 352-3101 or online at www.baruch.cuny.edu/bpac.
