Mozart’s Marriage (of Figaro)

Saturday, June 17 @ 5:00 p.m.


Featuring Dr. Nicolas Reveles, Anthony Whitson-Martini, and singers from the Point Loma Opera Theatre
Where do the best composers of all time get their inspiration? Almost always from THE WORDS. Dr. Nicolas Reveles and Anthony Whitson-Martini delve into Beaumarchais' revolutionary play, Le mariage de Figaro, and how the scandalous librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte spiced up Beaumarchais' original play in his collaboration with Mozart to create a timeless theatrical gem.
