Searching for her fiancé, Lindoro, Isabella is marooned near Algiers and captured. She quickly catches the eye of Mustafà, the local bey; bored with his harem, he has determined to marry an Italian girl. His plans go hilariously awry as Isabella thwarts Mustafà's advances, finding (and freeing) Lindoro in the process. The stage is set for madcap comedy in this brilliant production from the team that gave us The Barber of Seville and Cinderella.
Sung in Italian with projected English translation.
Tickets and seating are on your own.
Pre-curtain lectures are held 45 minutes before each performance on the Orchestra Level of the theater. These 20-minute presentations
are free and open to all ticket holders.
Out of consideration for other patrons and for the performers, there is
no late seating.
I will be at the top of the escalator to the left from 7:00PM to 7:10PM (look for the meetup lapel pin). Please come and say hello.
Downtown offers free metered street parking after 6:00PM on Saturday (do not use the red ones). Parking in the Theater District Parking Garage is $7.00 on Saturday. Clearance for trucks and vans is 6’8”.
*** PRE-SHOW DINNER ***
For anyone interested in having dinner before the performance, let's gather in the lobby of the Post Rice Lofts building at 5:45PM. It is located at 909 Texas in between Travis and Main Streets. I will be in the seating area on the left. We will leave for dinner at 6:00PM.
The amount of people attending will factor on restaurant choice. The larger the group the more casual a place we will need to go to in order to get in on a Saturday night.
