Music: Classical Theatre:
A one-act opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
November 16-17, 2012, 7:30 PM

Opera Mariposa is officially launching its first full season with a delightful (and appropriate!) comic opera about the struggles involved in running a small opera company. Mozart’s 'The Impresario' follows the trials and tribulations of an unfortunate opera director as he attempts to organize a show season while juggling financial woes, temperamental performers and his own existential crisis. The poor impresario finds himself caught in the middle when two difficult divas become determined to prove their own superiority… and the conflict escalates into a spirited musical duel as each prima donna competes to sing the highest notes and the fanciest music!

The opera will be preceded each night by a short concert of operatic favourites, including songs and scenes from 'Don Giovanni,' Così fan tutte' and 'La Bohème.' Don’t miss your chance to see this wonderful satire of the operatic life, written by one of the most renowned composers of all time!

In German with English dialogue and subtitles. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
