MOBILE, Ala. – The Alabama School of the Arts at University of Mobile will present “Le Nozze di Figaro,” The Marriage of Figaro, at Saraland Performing Arts Center April 13 and 15.
The comic opera with English supertitles will be presented April 13 at 7 p.m. and April 15 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at itickets.com or at the door. General admission is $25 and $10 for students with valid I.D.
“The Marriage of Figaro,” set in the late 18th century, is the story of two young servants longing to tie the knot while striving to elude the clutches of the count who is conspiring to loosen it. Under the direction of University of Mobile Director of Opera Dr. Patrick Jacobs, with producer and set designer Rebeca Lake, chair of the theatre department, and the baton of Dr. Scott Wright of Mobile Opera, 40 undergraduate and graduate performers will transport the audience to a time when classes govern but love triumphs.
The show will be brought to life by a creative and unique set design, with lights designed by Mateo Morris, an award-winning international guest lighting designer. Performers will wear delightful 18th century costumes transporting audiences back to a beautiful era, according to Lake.
“Audiences should come expecting a show that is a treat for the ears as well as the eyes,” Lake said.
