Austin Opera concludes its 2021 Season in November with Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, which was originally set to appear in November 2020. This inventive and stylish period production from Lyric Opera of Kansas City tells an upstairs/downstairs story of love, lust, seduction, infidelity, and—ultimately—forgiveness, all set to some of the most sublime and memorable music ever written.
The cast is led by four principals who are each singing their roles for the very first time on stage. The cast includes rising stars Will Liverman in his Austin Opera debut as the Count and Christian Zaremba, so memorable in 2017’s Carmen and 2019’s Silent Night, in his role debut as Figaro. Director E. Loren Meeker, the new General & Artistic Director of Opera San Antonio, makes her Austin Opera debut.
“We are so grateful for our patrons’ support and encouragement through the many adjustments to our programming in response to the pandemic. We are optimistic that our new season can proceed as outlined, but our audiences should rest assured that we have additional back-up plans should circumstances change yet again,” says Austin Opera General Director & CEO Annie Burridge.
