at Holy Names University in Oakland!

Follow the adventures of 'Captain' James T. Belmonte as he sets off on a mission to rescue his kidnapped crew members, 'Lieutenant' Constanza and 'Mister' Pedrillo, from an all-too- familiar set of villains. It's still Mozart all right, but with a slightly revised libretto — in English — by stage director Josh Shaw. For all the futuristic fun, this is still classic opera, and Festival Opera has assembled a troupe that rises to the occasion. Musically, Maestro Michael Morgan will conduct the Oakland Symphony, supported by the Festival Opera Chorus. The ensemble of vocal artists features tenor Brian Cheney as Belmonte, soprano Shawnette Sulker as Constanza, tenor Robert Norman as Pedrillo, and soprano Sara Duchovnay as Blondie. Bass Kevin Thompson is Osmin, the grumpy overseer of the seraglio, and baritone Michael Crozier appears in the spoken role of Chancellor Selim.
