Greater Worcester Opera to Perform Mozart with a Twist
Thursday, May 08, 2014
Greater Worcester Opera has announced its Spring lineup, and will perform 4 shows across Central Massachusetts between Saturday, May 24th and Sunday, June 8th.
The Opera will be performing Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte (English translation) and twist it with “How I Met Your Mother.” GWO explained the twist to GoLocalProv.
“Replacing the traditional recitatives with dialogue, actors portraying a father and his daughter will unfold the story of the opera while the singers perform the music as flashback scenes from the past. Love, jealousy, intrigue, multiple disguises, and deception bring us on a journey of heartbreak and ultimately a happy ending, when we finally discover the truth of “How I met your mother!”
The first show will be Saturday, May 24th at 7:30 p.m. at the Eagle Hill Cultural Center in Hardwick. GWO will also perform the show Sunday June 1st at 2:00 p.m. at New Players Theatre Guild Center for the Performing Arts in Fitchburg, Friday, June 6th at 8:00 p.m. at the Fuller Theatre at Worcester State University, and Sunday, June 8th at 2:00 p.m. at Fuller Theatre.
The performance is directed by Richard Monroe (stage) and Jeanne Drum (music) and the cast features talent from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and more.
Ticket prices range from $12-$22. Ticketing info is available by emailing [email protected] or calling 508-930-7062.
