MDLO: The Marriage of Figaro
Maryland Lyric Opera makes a triumphant return to fully staged performances with one of opera’s most popular musical comedies: Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, June 29 through July 3, 2022.
Presented in an inventive and stylish period production on the intimate stage of the Kay Theatre in The Clarice at the University of Maryland, the opera tells an upstairs/downstairs story of love and all of its hijinks – from lust to betrayal to forgiveness – all set to some of the most beautiful and indelible music ever written. Conducted by Music Director Louis Salemno and directed for the stage by David Gately, this classic remains every bit as relevant today as it was Mozart’s time – perfect for opera lovers and those who are new to opera alike.
The cast features Hunter Enoch as Figaro, Nayoung Ban as Susanna, Javier Arrey as the Count, Mary Feminear as the Countess, Allegra De Vita as Cherubino, and Kenneth Kellogg as Dr. Bartolo.
Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
The Clarice lobby concession bar Encore will be open for snack and beverage sales during the operas. Encore opens 45 minutes prior to the start of the performance and closes after the end of the second intermission.
Stadium Drive Garage will be closed over the summer. Free parking will be available in Lots 1/Z, the large surface lots just beyond The Clarice. A shuttle service from Lot 1 to The Clarice will be available before and after the opera.
For the Sunday performance: Please leave extra time for parking. Parking spots in Lots 1/Z may be limited due to a sports event on campus. In addition to free parking in Lots 1/Z, paid parking is available in Union Lane Garage. A shuttle service will run from The Clarice to Lot 1 and Union Lane Garage.
