Seasoned New York City Opera bass-baritone Ricardo Herrera takes the lead role as he joins the El Paso Opera to perform Mozart's four-act masterpiece, The Marriage of Figaro. Based on the comedic play by Pierre Beaumarchais, Mozart's collaboration with Lorenzo Da Ponte recounts a day of scheming, love triangles, and manipulation accented by joyful and frolicking strings. The performance kicks off with the iconic overture, before the plot unfolds in the play's original language, Italian, with supertitles translating the action and displaying the director's inner monologues in English and Spanish.
Celebrating its 19th season, El Paso Opera fills theaters with performances penned by composers, such as Mozart, Puccini, and Verdi. Artistic and general director David Grabarkewitz helps to curate local culture while holding his position as resident stage director at the New York City Opera.
