The Ithaca College Opera Workshop will present a free evening of scenes involving characters who appear in various operas on Tuesday, November 17 at 8:15 p.m. in Ford Hall in the James J. Whalen Center for Music.  Brian DeMaris will direct the evening.  He noted:  “We'll be presenting scenes from operas based on Beaumarchais' "Figaro" trilogy (“Barber of Seville,” “Marriage of Figaro,”  “La Mere Coupable”),  and including scenes from John Corigliano's "Ghosts of Versailles" and Massenet's "Cherubin," all sung in the original languages.  Students will guide the audience through the complete story of Figaro, Susannah, Cherubino, Countess Rosina, and Count Almaviva from the countess’s first music lessons in “Barber of Seville” to the moment they find themselves facing the guillotine of the French Revolution in a cell alongside Marie Antoinette in “Ghosts of Versailles.””
