Boulder Opera 8th Season!


Mozart’s comic opera, Le Nozze di Figaro, is a farcical jaunt through a not-so-typical day in the Almaviva household. The servant couple, Figaro and Susanna, are to be married later in the evening; while the Count (who has amorous designs on the bride) attempts to revive the droit seigneur allowing him intimate time with Susanna after her marriage.
Figaro and Susanna, together with the rejected Countess and the occasionally helpful, often irritating page boy, Cherubino, contrive an elaborate plot to outwit him. Much mayhem ensues, someone jumps out a window, clothes are exchanged, a second wedding occurs, and the Count receives a lesson in fidelity he’ll never forget.

With the talented Stage Director Michael Travis Risner, and music Direction by Steven Aguilo- Arbues. Our local and amazing cast: Armando Contreras as the Count and Kyrie Laybourn as the Countess. Sabine Balsamo as Susanna and Zeky Nadji as Figaro and Claire Mccahan as Cherubino.

*These performances will be semi outdoor, and while we will have heating lamps, we recommend dressing warmly. Mask and social distancing are required at all times

Boulder Opera presents the enchanting L’enfant et les sortilèges by Ravel with stage direction by Dana Kinney, and music direction by Steven Aguiló-Arbues.

Condemned to stay in his bedroom until dinner time, because he has been lazy, a child takes out his anger on the animals and objects around him. He knocks over a tea service, torments a squirrel and a cat, tears up the tapestry and then his books. Suddenly, as if by magic, these innocent victims come to life and decide to get their revenge.

The Opera is one hour long sung in French with subtitles. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
