Comedy in Mozart Operas

The Royal Conservatory

About half of Mozart's operas have comic storylines and a rich array of characters etched musically with a knowing tongue in cheek. With the action set everywhere from exotic harems to the upstairs/downstairs world of aristocratic mansions, the operas are comedies of manners that highlight the foibles of the passionate human heart. This four-week series traces the evolution of Mozart's comic genius, focusing especially on the decade from 1782, which started with Die Entführing aus dem Serail, included Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte, and ended with Die Zauberflöte. 

Registrants will receive a ticket to the Canadian Opera Company's Dress Rehearsal of The Abduction From Seraglio on Saturday, February 3rd, 7:30pm at The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
