Maryland Lyric Opera makes a triumphant return to fully staged performances with one of opera’s most popular musical comedies: Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, June 29 through July 3, 2022.

Presented in an inventive and stylish period production on the intimate stage of the Kay Theatre in The Clarice at the University of Maryland, the opera tells an upstairs/downstairs story of love and all of its hijinks – from lust to betrayal to forgiveness – all set to some of the most beautiful and indelible music ever written. Conducted by Music Director Louis Salemno and directed for the stage by David Gately, this classic remains every bit as relevant today as it was Mozart’s time – perfect for opera lovers and those who are new to opera alike.

The cast features Hunter Enoch as Figaro, Nayoung Ban as Susanna, Javier Arrey as the Count, Mary Feminear as the Countess, Allegra De Vita as Cherubino, and Kenneth Kellogg as Dr. Bartolo.

Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.

In Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), Mozart’s miraculous blend of the human and the supernatural, comedy and romance, draws us into a world where a prince, Tamino, and a princess, Pamina, triumph over every obstacle in their search for wisdom and enlightenment and are finally united in love. With an enduring love story at its heart, plus complex villains and an unforgettable comic sidekick in Papageno, Die Zauberflöte weaves an enchanting tale from start to finish. Sung in German with English supertitles.

Pared down to simplified costumes and minimal production, the fall opera is the art form at its most elemental: the singer, the story and the music take center stage. In addition to the MOS singers, this performance features undergraduate students from UMD Choral Activities and the work of M.F.A. design students from the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.
