Così fan tutte

Set on Shenandoah Conservatory’s main proscenium stage and directed each year by a different distinguished guest artist, Main Stage Opera provides audiences with the full opera experience! The classic romantic comedy Così fan tutte follows two sisters whose devotion to their beloved fiancés is cynically put to the test by their own lovers with help from the conniving Alfonso and mischievous Despina. Mozart’s radiant score, performed by the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra, is cleverly juxtaposed with one of the most bittersweet stories of deceit, fidelity and love.

Sung in Italian with English titles.

Duration: Approximately 170 minutes*

Figaro

BY CHARLES MOREY DIRECTED BY SARA GOMEZ

In this hilarious adaptation of Beaumarchais’ comic masterpiece, Figaro mischievously skewers the aristocracy, whilst dodging obstacles in the way of his anticipated betrothal. Set in 18th century France, the playwright creates a clever balance between then…and now!

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!

Currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary!

YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN (Revised) is a fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic, based on the beloved comic strip by Charles Schultz. Sally Brown joins Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, and Snoopy in this charming revue of vignettes and songs.
