OU Opera Theater presents two classic one-act comedies. Coffee is at the heart of Bach’s Coffee Cantata—will Lizzy give it up for the promise of love? This inventive heroine brews up a plan with wit and charm. Sung in English with English supertitles.
In La Serva Padrona, Serpina uses mischief and guile to take charge of the life of the man she loves, winning both his heart and his estate! With its comedic banter and commedia dell’arte characters, this “maid to mistress” opera provides lively theatrical entertainment. Sung in Italian with English supertitles. This production is suitable for all audiences. Video-on-demand will be available.
