The Sunday Opera: Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

xxx_figaro_final_2.jpg

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra provides us with this week’s Sunday Opera (12/1 3:00 p.m.) with their production of Mozart’s perennial favorite, “The Marriage of Figaro.”  Douglas Williams leads the company as the irrepressible title character with Joelle Harvey as the love of his life, Susanna.  Gordon Bintner is the fickle Count Almaviva, and Rachel Willis-Sorensen his loving wife with Maren Favela as the troublesome Cherubino.  Edo De Waart conducts.  

Following the opera, Michael Kownacky will be sharing more of Mozart’s music with the “Posthorn” Serenade in D major, K/KV320 as well as one of the contradances, this one the C major “Le Batille” KV 535.

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
