Cinnabar Theater Adds 6/11 Performance of 'FIGARO'
Cinnabar Theater is on a roll: today, after selling out the opening weekend for its opulent production of The Marriage of Figaro, it extended its fourth straight show. This elegant and hilarious opera concludes a spectacular season at Sonoma County's beloved professional theater. Figaro has added a performance on June 11 at 7:30 PM - but this Marriage must end on June 15, so don't wait to get seats!
"Naturally we are thrilled by the great reception to our Marriage," punned Artistic Director Elly Lichenstein. "We are enormously grateful to all of the artists and audiences that have made our season such a success.
Mozart's music soars at Cinnabar with this rich and playful production of his enormously popular opera. Performed entirely in English, The Marriage of Figaro tells a luscious tale of seduction and forgiveness. The Count keeps chasing skirt, and the Countess wants to catch him in the act... So she conspires with two wisecracking servants who delight audiences as they outwit their boss. It's comic opera at its best, mixing saucy jokes and gorgeous songs of love. After past hits like Carmen and Don Giovanni, Lichenstein reunited with Music Director Mary Chun to stage this glorious marriage of music and theater.
Their production features 20 incredible singers and a 10-piece orchestra. The ensemble showcases the talents of Kelly Britt (Susanna), Miguel Evangelista (Don Basilio and Don Curzio), William Neely (Bartolo), James Pfeiffer (Antonio), Cary Ann Rosko (Cherubino), Christiaan Smith-Kotlarek (Count Almaviva), Bharati Soman (Countess Rosina), Maayan Voss de Bettancourt (Barbarina), Eugene Walden (Figaro), and Krista Wigle (Marcellina).
The designs for this show highlight the work of Wayne Hovey (scenery), Lisa Eldredge (costumes), and Krista Smith (lights). The entire production is generously underwritten by the Klebe Family.
