The Italian Girl in Algiers
Sung in: Italian
Opera Synopsis: 
Our pop-up book production of The Italian Girl in Algiers has been just as popular as the opera itself, winging its way around the continent to San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Calgary, Kansas City, St. Paul, and Costa Mesa since its 2002 premiere. It touches down at its home field for just five performances, so book your passage now!
Rossini explored the comic possibilities of the relationship between the European and “Moorish” cultures, as they were then called. The result was one of his finest and funniest comedies, set to music of enormous vitality and it was an immediate smash hit. The composer himself described its giddy audiences as “even crazier than I am,” Stendahl soon crafted the perfect four-word description—“organized and complete madness”—and no less a fan than Richard Strauss later said he was “mad with enthusiasm” for it. Enjoy a series of madcap machinations worthy of the Marx Brothers, with music to match.
