WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Opera Lafayette's returns to New York with the modern premiere of this dazzling romantic comedy by France's most heralded composer of 18th-century opéra-comique. The story takes place in Il Magnifico's Florence and combines tender Gallic charm with lively Italian buffo. Its celebrated "rose" scene and programmatic overture set the tone for a pantomime directed by Catherine Turocy. A virtuoso troupe of seven actor-singers joins intimate and bravura arias to fast-paced ensemble finales, which drive this short three-act comedy towards its inevitably happy close. In his American debut, the extraordinary young Swiss tenor Emiliano Gonzalez Toro takes the title role, with a cast including sopranos: Elizabeth Calleo, Marguerite Krull, tenors: Jeffrey Thompson and Karim Sulayman, baritone Doug Williams, with narration by bass-baritone Randall Scarlata. Concert version in French with English narration and supertitles.
