The St. Petersburg Opera Company will present Highlights of Ariadne aud Naxos on Sunday, May 19, 2013, 2:00-3:30 p.m., in the Rollins Theatre. Reserved seating. Open to the public. Tickets are $12/person and are on sale now at the Community Association Office, Mon-Wed-Fri, 9:00am - noon.
Synopsis of the Opera: The richest man in Vienna plans to entertain his guests with both an opera and an Italian burlesque. The first act shows the competitive spectacle that arises when it is announced the two pieces must be performed at the same time. The Composer fights to save his "high art" while we witness the scheming of the various theatrical directors and performers. The second act is the performance of "Ariadne auf Naxos", the improvised combined efforts of the opera and burlesque troupes to convey a touching story about love lost and love found. Strauss' entertaining opera features three major roles for women: the Composer (a pants role), the Prima Donna (Ariadne), and Zerbinetta (the leader of commedia dell'arte players). Maestro Sforzini will charm you with his signature style and amusing narration.
