Ghost of Versailles at the Château de Versailles Spectacles

Ms. Wolcott will sing Revolutionary Woman/Pursuer

In this nod to the Barber of Seville and to the Marriage of Figaro, Marie-Antoinette’s ghost is devastated by her premature death. Her favourite theatre writer, Beaumarchais, tries to amuse her with a new composition. He creates an opera within an opera, featuring Figaro, Count Almaviva and Susanna, all trying to save the queen from beheading in a musical and spirited production.

Coproduction Opéra Royal / Château de Versailles Spectacles, Festival de Glimmerglass (USA).

Show in English with surtitles in French and English
