Opera at USC: “La Finta Giardiniera” by Mozart
Opera at USC presents the fully staged comic opera La Finta Giardiniera by Mozart, sung in Italian with live orchestra. Director David C. Toulson sets the opera in and around a 1920s Hollywood movie studio. A double love triangle, murder, disguise, romance and jealousy set the pace for the farcical opera and proves anything can happen in the early days of Hollywood – and in a Mozart opera! The production runs November 3 – 5 at Drayton Hall Theatre on the University of South Carolina campus. Tickets $7 – $25.
