BY DOMENICO CIMAROSA

Buck Ross, producer/director Raymond Harvey, conductor Tickets: RS $20|$12

An inspector from Mussolini’s Rome is paying an incognito visit to a small Italian village, sending everyone into a frenzy of comic obsequiousness, greed, and lust for power. American composer John Musto’s very funny adaptation of Gogol’s satirical play, The Government Inspector, premiered recently at Wolf Trap to rapturous reviews. Sung in the original English with the English text projected above the stage.

show times 27 | 7:30 p.m. 29 | 2:00 p.m. 30 | 7:30 p.m.

Nicole Kenley,** stage director Kris Chapman,** conductor Tickets: RS $20|$12

So you've secretly married your father's assistant, your father is a fool, your sister is a harpy, your maiden aunt is lusting after your new husband, and a wealthy English count has come to enter into an arranged marriage with your sister, but decides he'd much rather marry you instead. What could possibly go wrong? The Secret Marriage is considered to be the funniest opera of the 18th century. Come see why! Sung in the original Italian with English translation projected above the stage.
