Opera Theater of Pittsburgh Presents: Capriccio
as Servant 5, The Count(Cover), July 25, 31 7:30pm, August 2, 2pm 
Art Deco Theater, Twentieth Century Club in Pittsburgh, PA

 

Words or music? This is the dilemma that the Countess Madeleine must wrestle with, as two suitors (one a poet, the other a composer) vie for her love. Which will the Countess choose? Strauss' luminous and lovely final opera contains charming music that belies its composition in the midst of war in October of 1942. SummerFest performances of Capriccio represent the second year of a planned four-year Strauss cycle, focusing on ravishing but lesser-known works by this 20th century master.

Mozart's classic comic opera meets Downton Abbey at SummerFest 2015! The Count has his eye on his valet's fiancée, who happens to be his wife's chambermaid.
