Violante goes into hiding as “the disguised gardener” at the local Mayor’s country estate after escaping her abusive lover, Count Belfiore. As she chooses forgiveness and to love again, a dizzying cast of characters in disguise, enamored, and in chaos come together in this seriocomic account of the very complex nature of the human heart.
Combining buoyant comedy with drama and sublime music, this opera from 1775 showcases everything we love about Mozart’s work.
Performed in Italian with English captions.
