In this hilarious nod to The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro, the ghost of Marie Antoinette is upset about her untimely ending, so her favorite playwright, Beaumarchais, attempts to amuse her with a new work. He produces an opera within the opera starring Figaro, Count Almaviva and Susanna, who try to save the queen from her beheading in a fast-moving and tuneful production.
Jay Lesenger directs a new production of The Ghosts of Versailles in a co-production with Royal Opera of Versailles; the new production is conducted by Joseph Colaneri. Presented in English with projected English text.
This production is sponsored by Elizabeth M. and Jean-Marie R. Eveillard.
