Mozart: The Garden of Disguises (Opera)

Saturday 10th February 2018, 7:00 pm


Mozart: ‘The Garden of Disguises’
(La Finta Giardiniera, translated into English by John Warrack)

Ryedale Festival Opera

Director – Nina Brazier
Conductor – Eamonn Dougan
Sandrina – Alice Privett
Podestà – Robin Horgan
Arminda – Clare Tunney
Serpetta – Jessica Cale
Nardo – Harry Thatcher
Belfiore – Kieran Carrel
Ramiro – Anna Harvey

Seven characters with complicated love lives meet an eighteen-year-old composer full of imagination and musical genius. Here, the combination of Nina Brazier’s skilful direction, Laura Stanfield‘s highly-praised design and Eamonn Dougan’s expert conducting make for a truly stunning evening.

The Garden of Disguises, in its ‘new, witty translation’ (Opera Now) is full of lyrical beauty, human foibles and dramatic intrigue. With two characters in thinly-veiled disguises, and lovers and ex-lovers crossing paths at every turn, this is an opera of secrets and lies, but also of forgiveness and reconciliation – and these are qualities that Mozart can express in music like none other.

‘Ryedale Festival each year offers an operatic production of the highest quality’ – YORKSHIRE POST
