dell’Arte Opera Ensemble Presents – Ariadne auf Naxos – Excerpts in Concert
dAOE is back with more opera in the park this Saturday with excerpts from:
Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos
an opera about an opera company making an opera
It’s the birthday of the richest man in Inwood, and he’s lined up some entertainment – an improv troupe, and an opera company. He’s got some ideas about how to keep things “interesting” and isn’t all afraid to cause a little culture clash. The Composer is excited to present the premiere of his opera “Ariadne on (the island of) Naxos,” but there are surprises ahead for him, his teacher, and his cast. The comedians Zerbinetta and Harlekin, and their Dance Captain will keep everyone on their toes for an exciting performance.
Approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission. Bring a blanket or chairs and a snack. Social distancing highly encouraged.
