About this show

Chicago Opera Theater presents Il Pigmalione & Rita, a double bill that spans the life and career of opera's premier bel canto composer, Gaetano Donizetti. The two works weave together a stunningly theatrical production featuring the talents of Javier Abreu (Pigmalione/Beppe), Angela Mortellato (Galetea/Rita), Keith Phares (Gaspar), and the physical theater expert Adrian Danzig. Donizetti's first work and one of his last, both of which he never lived to see performed, are presented together as an exploration of love, fantasy, and the blurry lines between them. The double bill is conducted by Franceso Milioto and directed by Amy Hutchison.
