Upcoming Performances

There are no scheduled performances for Fall Quarter 2014.

 

For Winter Quarter, 2015:

Opera UCLA, together with the UCLA Department of Theater and the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music,  will present the West Coast premiere of Saverio Mercadante's bubbly 1826 masterpiece, I DUE FIGARO.  Set to a libretto by Felice Romani, who wrote the brilliant libretto for Rossini's THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, our opera imagines the further adventures of the wily and irrepressible Figaro, who finally meets his match and is brought to account by the various women in his life.  I DUE FIGARO will be part of the citywide FIGARO UNBOUND Celebration of LA Opera. 

Guest conductor Joseph Colaneri of the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Opera, Music Director of Glimmerglass Opera and head of the Opera training program at Mannes, will conduct the UCLA Philharmonia.

Peter Kazaras, Director of Opera Studies at UCLA, will direct.  

This production is made possible through a generous grant from the Max H. Gluck Foundation. 

Performance dates:
