Saimir Pirgu, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo, Ruxandra Donose, and Aleksandra Kurzak";

Mozart’s delightfully comic battle of the sexes comes to life with ravishingly beautiful music and sparkling wit on Saturday, July 14th, from 1 to 4:30 pm.

The cast includes soprano Aleksandra Kurzak and bass-baritone Ildebrando D’Arcangelo.  An opera buffa (comic opera) in two acts, it was first performed in 1790. The libretto was written by Lorenzo Da Ponte – this is the third in a trilogy of librettos by Da Ponte; the others were for Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni.
