Congratulations to all the students at the Curtis Institute of Music who performed in, Le nozzi de Figaro. Superb singing and acting. I attended 3 of the 4 performances and enjoyed them all; if there were another performance tonight I would go again. The opera blends comedy and pathos without being bawdy or sappy. The final scene in the final act is one of my favorites (it's very Catholic). The blending of contemporary costume and stage with a literal rendition of the text was convincing, attractive, and it helps the layman (like me) understand the actors' roles immediately. Mozart would be proud. Thank you. Beautifully done.
