Description: Taconic Opera presents the opera up-close in a more intimate venue. The opera is a model of bel-canto composition which places high demands on the technique of the singer. It features astounding patter duets, hilarious buffo dexterity, and vocal fireworks that rival the best works of Rossini. The story centers on an old buffoon who needs to be taught a hard lesson about chasing young women. His family and friends lead him to believe he is wedding the girl of his dreams, only to find she is his worst nightmare.
