Figaro! (90210)  | Open: 06/11/13 Close: 06/16/13
 

After a sold-out premiere in November 2012 at Dixon Place, Figaro! (90210)returns for a limited run between June 11 and 16, 2013.  Morningside Opera will present the show in concert performances at The NSD Theater (151 Bank Street, west of Hudson) in the West Village.

The debate over immigration reform takes center stage in this multi-cultural adaptation of Mozart’s opera “The Marriage of Figaro” set in present-day Los Angeles. Figaro! (90210) also makes the opera more accessible to contemporary audiences by distilling the action of the show to two and a half hours, including a fifteen minute intermission. 

Figaro! (90210)showcases Mozart’s celebrated music from The Marriage of Figaro note-for-note, but with an entirely new English (and Spanglish) libretto by writer Vid Guerrerio, that recasts the opera’s title character as an undocumented worker on a Beverly Hills estate. 

The NSD Theater is located at The New School for Drama. Performances will run June 11, 12, 14 and 15 at 8:00PM and Sunday, June 16 at 3:00PM. More information and ticketing can be found at www.morningsideopera.com. All tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door and $25 for students and seniors. 

Playing With Fire  | Open: 05/18/12 Close: 06/10/12
"Playing With Fire", an Actors Equity Approved Showcase production, in a translation by Ulrika Brand, newly adapted by Obie-winner Leslie Lee, Executive Director of Negro Ensemble Company, is the inaugural production of The August Strindberg Repertory Theatre, directed by Robert Greer. One of Strindberg's rare comedies, "Playing With Fire" has been transported by Leslie Lee from its original 1893 Swedish summer house setting to a 1926 summer cottage of members of the black social elite in a neighborhood of Martha's Vineyard. In the play, Axel, a writer (James Edward Becton*), visits his friends, Kerstin (Toccarra Cash*) and Knut (Nathan James*), where they live with and off of his mother (Elizabeth Flax*), who constantly indulges in gossip, and his father (Jolie Garrett*), a wealthy retired businessman who lusts after Knut's mistress, his younger, poorer cousin, Adele (Jaleesa Capri). Meanwhile, both Adele and Kerstin have their sights set on Axel. Sparks fly as the characters contest for power over each other in a dynamic 90 minutes of comic drama.*AEA members
