San Francisco Parlor Opera will perform W.A. Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro at 1550 Fell Street in the Historic Zellerbach mansion. Instead of the scenes changing on a dedicated stage, the audience will move from room to room as the story progresses. Acts I and II will take place in separate rooms of the attic. Act III will take place in the main floor parlor and Act IV will take place in the backyard garden. The opera will be performed in the original Italian. An English narration will precede each act.

My guess is there won’t be a full orchestra. But I like this idea, just for a fun night. Only thing better would be moving from place to place for the opera and getting food while you’re at it. Don’tcha think?

I’d consider going, but I have work. Mozart for the first two performances and Beauty & the Beast for the second two. Ah well.
