Curtis Symphony Orchestra
Lio Kuokman, conductor
Rossini: La scala di seta (The Silken Staircase)
Puccini: Gianni Schicchi
This delightful double bill pairs confusion and comedy, motivated by matchmaking. A silken ladder leads to love in Rossini's fast-paced farce, while Puccini's wily hero devises an audacious scheme to unite a young couple.
Fully staged production with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in Italian with English supertitles.
The Curtis Opera Theatre season is sponsored by the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
