2018 Festival: Mozart & Salieri

August 11–26
Summer Shares at La MaMa

66 East 4th Street (btw Bowery & 2nd Ave)

Opera’s greatest rivals, or Opera’s greatest co-workers?  Mozart and Salieri simultaneously served as important musicians in the Viennese Court Theater for years in the late 18th century, alongside their colleague, librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte.  Our 2017 Festival features Mozart’s Don Giovanni (in the version created for the first Vienna production), Salieri’s La Cifra (The Code), and a scenes program including Rimsky Korsakov’s one-act Russian opera Mozart & Salieri (after Pushkin), as well as extended scenes from Cosi fan tutteLe nozze di Figaro, and Salieri’s Falstaff.  Mozart and Salieri are as much the featured characters of our season, just as much as the Don.
