¡Figaro! (90210) with Chautauqua Opera

Jesus Vicente Murillo plays the timeless Figaro in Vid Guerrerio’s contemporary multicultural adaptation of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, which sets the action in modern-day Beverly Hills. Hollywood elite Paul and Roxanne Conti (Count Almaviva and Rosina) are now married with a daughter, and Figaro and his soon-to-be-bride Susana are undocumented workers on their estate. Hailed by Opera News as “dynamic, thought-provoking, respectful, and, yes, hilarious,” Guerrerio’s English and Spanish libretto infuses Mozart’s masterpiece with humor, heart, and present-day discussions of race, class, and American identity.

This Opera is rated PG-13 for mature language and situations.
