A good friend of mine is on an opera kick right now. No complaints. She suggested we see the Cleveland Opera Circle’s performance of The Marriage of Figaro at the end of April. It was a lovely time.
Here is Barbara Bonney singing one of the popular arias, where Susanna tortures her new husband by making him think she is about to meet a lover on their wedding night. (As an aside, a lot of people brought their kids to the show. Considering that the entire show is about adultery, that seemed weird.)
