Ms. Yokabaskas will sing the role of Roxanne Conti.

Jorge Parodi • Music Director/Conductor

“Vid Guerrerio’s contemporary multicultural adaptation of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro sets the action in modern-day Beverly Hills. Hollywood elite Paul and Roxanne Conti (Count Almaviva and Rosina) are now married with a daughter, and Figaro and his soon-to-be-bride Susana are undocumented workers on their estate. Hailed by Opera News as “dynamic, thought-provoking, respectful, and, yes, hilarious,” Guerrerio’s English and Spanish libretto infuses Mozart’s masterpiece with humor, heart, and present-day discussions of race, class, and American identity.”

The Ghosts of Versailles

Ms. Yokabaskas will sing the role of Rosina.

Steven Osgood • Conductor
Peter Kazaras • Stage Director
Nicola Bowie • Choreographer
Caitlin Lynch • Marie Antoinette
Daniel Belcher • Beaumarchais

“Marie Antoinette and her court are bored of the afterlife, and bitter about their deaths. The love-struck ghost of Beaumarchais believes he can change the queen’s untimely fate by using the power of art. He brings his beloved Figaro and company back to life in a new opera, but when Figaro refuses to stick to the script, Beaumarchais must enter his own story. Alternately hilarious and heart breaking, this grand opera buffa is one of America’s operatic masterpieces.”
