The Impresario and Les Mamelles De Tiresias

Directed by: Thomas de Mallet Burgess
Music Direction by: Jessica Gethin
Performed by: Classical Vocal students

The Impresario (Der Schauspieldirektor) is a comic singspiel by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Two warring sopranos try to out-sing each other with ever-higher notes; the Impresario hires them both but each wants to be the Prima Donna and receive the highest fee. Who will win?

We follow this with Francis Poulenc’s one-act opera-bouffe Les  Mamelles de Tirésias (The Breasts of Therese). Therese tires of her submissive, dull life – and what follows is just as absurd, hilarious and shocking as it was at the premiere in 1947! With music in the style of Offenbach, Chabrier and Ravel, Poulenc’s brilliant comic opera impresses the listener with its  stream of melody, dances, and pastiches from other popular music of the time. Based on a farce by Guillaume Apollinaire, Les Mamelles is sure to delight.

Double your fun with a boisterous evening at the opera!
