The performance is approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes, with one 20-minute intermission after Act1.
A sparkling comedy in three-quarter time.
Gabriel von Eisenstein has been sentenced to a fortnight in jail, but his confinement is preceded by an evening of mistaken identity. At a masked ball, two old flames reunite and flirtations occur between a woman and her husband who don’t recognize each other. One man’s elaborate plan for revenge results in a comedy of errors, accompanied by some of opera’s most catchy music.
Please note that as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, Edmonton Opera will be providing complimentary parking to all of its patrons at the Jubilee parkade during all opera performances this season.
