CCM students and staff are putting their own mark on Mozart’s timeless opera buffa The Marriage of Figaro (Le Nozze di Figaro) whether it is from the original 18th-century-inspired costume designs, the simple and elegant scenic designs or the polished presentation of Mozart’s comedic ensemble scenes. The Marriage of Figaro runs from February 10-13 in CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater on the University of Cincinnati campus.

Costume designer Amanda Rae Janke, a third-year graduate student, will present her thesis work with her 18th-century inspired costume designs for CCM’s upcoming production of The Marriage of Figaro. Designing for her first opera and her first set of costumes for the 18th-century, Amanda had the challenge of researching the time period to design the realistic costumes. In addition, her costumes were integral to the plot of the opera as well. One example is a cloak that switches hands quickly between two female characters in a comedic scene of mistaken identities.
CCM’s Opera Program rings in 2011 on a jovial note with the Mozart’s classic opera buffa The Marriage of Figaro and continues in the same vein with Offenbach’s lesser-performed opéra bouffe The Island of Tulipatan. Then, CCM students welcome everyone into their learning process by presenting scenes from operas, providing an eclectic and entertaining mix of tragedy, comedy and high-quality singing.
