Opera Wednesday

By Drew

From the 1992 world premiere production of John Corigliano's seldom-performed opera The Ghosts of Versailles (based on characters from The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro), here is an all-star cast: Renée Fleming as Rosina, Stella Zambalis as Cherubino, Teresa Stratas as Marie Antoinette, and Häkan Hagegärd as Beaumarchais (author of the "Figaro" plays, and a financier of France's role in the American Revolution). This is "Come Now, My Darling."
