A new opera will premier at the Barns of Wolf Trap in the Spring!
"The Inspector", with music by John Musto and libretto by Mark Stephen Campbell, is "loosely" based on "The Government Inspector" by Nikolai Gogol.
From the description on the Wolf Trap Opera website:
"The Inspector is set in 1930s Sicily in a fictional small town not far from Palermo. A crafty drifter is perceived to be a high-ranking government inspector by town officials, who go to great comic lengths to hide the extent of their corruption."
Tickets for the world premier on April 27th do not appear to be for sale, but tickets for the performances on April 29th and May 1st are available.
