WNO presented Mozart’s final opera to over ten thousand fans as part of the company’s “Opera in the Outfield” program.
This was a fun opera for the whole family. Stage director Harry Silverstein packed the stage with magical costumes and fanciful characters. Jun Kaneko’s projections created an animated set bursting with imagination and complexity.
The cast took their bows on stage wearing Nats baseball caps as a wink to the fans in the ballpark watching on the huge HD screen. Of course, we captured every magic moment live and in glorious color.
