Event Description

Live opera is BACK! Set in front of and behind the cameras of a 1980s soap opera, this star-studded and shoulder-padded production of Mozart’s triumphant opera empowers female characters unlike ever before and promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and drama — whether this is your first or 100th time at the opera.

The dynamic cast of young stars features Iowa City native Jessica Faselt as Fiordiligi, Metropolitan Opera mainstay Ashley Emerson as Despina, mezzo-soprano Olivia Vote as Dorabella, tenor Ziwen Xiang as Ferrando, and baritones Leroy Davis and Adelmo Guidarelli as Guglielmo and Don Alfonso.

They’ll be joined by a company of 13 Young Artists who hail from Cedar Rapids and across the globe (including Argentina and Haiti), a first-rate ensemble of Corridor artists, and the always-exceptional Orchestra Iowa.

Conducted by Daniel Kleinknecht. Shoulder pads and big hair optional.
