Utah State University Opera Theatre presents Mozart’s opera La finta giardiniera, a rarely-heard classical masterpiece that tells the story of a wronged Countess who disguises herself as a gardener in order to navigate the intricacies of courtly love, revenge, and the usual temporary operatic insanity. Both comedic and dramatic, the piece will be performed in Italian and English with English subtitles by USU vocal performance students accompanied by the USU Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Sergio Bernal. The production is guest directed by internationally-acclaimed director Daniel Helfgot (www.danielhelfgot.com). This production presents a unique look into early classical opera that all audiences can enjoy.
Productions are Feb. 2-4, 2017 at 7:30pm and Feb. 4 at 2pm in the Morgan Theatre in the Chase Fine Arts Center at Utah State.
