The Marriage of Figaro

June 8 and 10

Opera@Augustana, Genesius Guild, Opera Quad Cities and St. Ambrose University have combined resources to present Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro.”

Performances will take place in Allaert Auditorium at St. Ambrose Friday, June 8, and Sunday, June 10. Tickets are $21 for adults, $18 for seniors 55+, and free for all students with a valid student ID. 

Opera Quad Cities will serve as the overall production producer. Dr. Michelle Crouch, adjunct assistant professor of music at Augustana, will provide stage direction. Dr. Nathan Windt, assistant professor of music and director of choral activities for St. Ambrose, will conduct.

Previously, summer opera productions sponsored by Genesius Guild and Opera@Augustana were held in Rock Island’s Lincoln Park. The move to a climate-controlled environment will provide productions with greater acoustics, lighting, and improved parking, organizers said.
