THE IMPRESARIO AND GIANNI SCHICCHI DOUBLE BILL


October 26, 2018

Long before Bugs Bunny made a mockery of opera, it was none other than Mozart who wrote the definitive parody of opera directors and singers. In this contemporary adaptation filled with folly and frolic, Knoxville Opera’s egomaniacal Impresario engages Cristoforo Cannelloni, a “know-it-all” Italian opera fanatic, to deal with the trials and tribulations of casting his upcoming production of Gianni Schicchi. After an intermission, you’ll see how the casting works out in Puccini’s comic masterpiece about Florence, Italy’s most notorious reprobate. Gianni Schicchi’s hilarious plot and ravishing music includes opera’s most beloved soprano aria, “Oh! mio babbino caro.”
