Monday, March 12th, 2018 at 10:30am A winning cast comes together for Phelim McDermott’s clever vision of Mozart’s comedy about the sexes, set in a carnival-esque, funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island—complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters, and a Ferris wheel. Manipulating the action are the Don Alfonso of Christopher Maltman and the Despina of Tony Award–winner Kelli O’Hara, with Amanda Majeski, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka as the pairs of young lovers who test each other’s faithfulness. David Robertson conducts. Your seats will be just a few rows behind the pit in the Orchestra section. This will be a real working rehearsal, the final dress for the production. You will get to see the finishing touches put on a brand new production of a classic opera!
