Vashon Opera’s sixth season kicks off in September with Mozart’s Don Giovanni, considered one of the greatest operas of all time. Watch as the Don pushes his limits and meets his ultimate demise in this brilliantly crafted masterwork. Part comedy, part tragedy this opera is Mozart at his finest, sparkling with music full of sheer genius.
In February the season continues with American composer Richard Wargo’s The Music Shop presented as a free performance for the children of the Island. Laugh aloud as a mild-mannered man comes to a sheet music shop to purchase a song, but…he can’t remember the title or tune of the song! What ensues is sure to amuse both kids and adults alike.
The season concludes in May with British composer Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring, a charming chamber opera written in 1947. Endlessly witty, poignant and beautifully layered, Britten’s comic opera highlights the misadventures of a lonely shop-boy in a small English village that is teeming with colorful and amusing characters.
As Islanders have come to expect, Vashon Opera productions are presented in intimate settings where audience members are up close to the action. The sixth season promises to continue that tradition.
