Mozart’s youthful, horny commedia del arte inspired opera is packed with attempted murder, betrayal, deceit and incest…and it’s a comedy! As if locked in a church basement for all of eternity, forced to perform one opera seria plot after another, this cast of characters got it up once more to act out la finta giardiniera as a no-holds-barred exploration of all it is to be human…and in the end not all of them made it out alive.
