An opera for opera lovers…

This new production for Madison Opera coupled period costumes and scenery with "Enlightened" perspectives on feminism and cross-cultural relationships. Set in the Tulip Era of the Ottoman Empire, this lavish concert staging was lauded as "an opera for opera lovers."

“This comic romp utilized a beautiful set and wonderful costumes designed and constructed in-house. Musically and visually the production was a success. The audience responded with 19 ovations during the performance – yes, I counted.” (Well Tempered Blog)
