German for Singers program to present ‘Marriage of Figaro’

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s German Language School and its special program “German for Singers” will once again present their fully staged German opera project to the public. On Thursday, Aug. 10, and on Friday, Aug. 11, students from the program will perform an abbreviated version of Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro,” in German, of course. The original récits have been replaced with short dialogues in German. Audiences will be able to fully enjoy the best of Mozart’s mastery of the operatic ensemble, and the artful lyricism of the aria in this production.
With set designer Andreas Ehlers (formerly Gärtnerplatztheater München) as the newest member of the production team, the show will charm audiences both with its cast of high-caliber singers and its own special visual language. Musical direction by Stefan Rütter, stage directed by Bettina Matthias and Stephan Boving.
A short pre-performance lecture in English at 7:45 p.m. will help non-German speaking audiences get the most out of this German version of an Italian opera based on a French play performed in Vermont and presented by students from multiple countries.
Approximate running time is 90 minutes.  Limited tickets to the general public are on sale for $15. Tickets may be purchased at townhalltheater.org, 802-382-9222, at the THT box office, or at the door Mon.-Sat., noon-5 p.m. or 1hr before show time.
