A Seattle Opera Premiere!

ROLLICKING FARCE. This August, discover the final madcap comedy from the playful and prolific composer of The Barber of Seville and The Italian Girl in Algiers. Notorious skirt-chaser Count Ory and his merry-making minions scheme their way into a medieval French castle by means of outrageous disguises, crazy coincidences, and narrow escapes. Plans are foiled, wine cellars are raided, and all is forgiven in this all-new, locally-built, Monty Python-inspired production filled with whimsical animation and vivid colors to start the season with a bang.
