Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro from Midwest Institute of Opera


The Marriage of Figaro is a comic opera by Mozart, based on a stage comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais. It’s this year’s full production by the Midwest Institute of Opera in Normal, whose mission is to offer young artists the chance to perform complete operatic roles in their original language under the guidance of professional opera staff. Performances will take place July 28th and 30th, and we’ll have an advance live preview on the Monday edition of “Live and Local.”
