School to perform German opera at THT

MIDDLEBURY — The German Summer Language School’s “German for Singers” program will once again present their summer opera project to the general public. On Friday, Aug. 10, and again on Saturday, Aug. 11, at 8:30 p.m., participants in the program will perform an abbreviated version of Mozart’s “Die Gärtnerin aus Liebe,” KV 196 (his German version of La Finta Giardiniera) at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater.
Though written when Mozart was just 18 years old, the opera features musical and plot characteristics found in more mature works as well. A comedy of mistaken identities and love triangles combined with a crisis of trust, “Die Gärtnerin aus Liebe” is half Commedia dell’ Arte and half Opera Seria, providing the composer with the opportunity to deeply explore the lyrical and comedic idioms as well as the art of the ensemble.
In German, with a pre-performance talk in English at 7:45 p.m. Show starts at 8:30, $15- limited seating available. Tickets and more information at the THT box office, 802-382-9222, or online at townhalltheater.org.
