I see every opera that comes to the Capital theater. Tonight I went to the final dress rehearsal of Figaro with my parents, my 18 year old sister, and 30 of my students (at $3 a ticket you can't complain!) Their is a special place in my heart for the Marriage of Figaro. But I might as well be honest...tonight I fell completely involve with this Figaro. I couldn't take my eyes off him. He had a warm rich tone and every time he smiled two dimples appeared! My 53 year old mother sitting in the seat next to me agreed completely. He was very appealing.
I was in the Marriage of Figaro in college but I hadn't seen in for ages and I'd forgotten allot of the plot twists and turns. It was so funny the whole audience was rolling. It was so tender that the whole audience released a very addable "Ahhh" when Figaro sings of his love for fiance Susanna. It was so enjoyable I wanted to rush right home and endorse it. Run get your tickets for Figaro from the Capital theater. It opens Saturday and plays for a week but hurry it will sell out every night. You won't regret it and if you do...then opear is not your thing because this is as good as it gets.
