Mozart and the Garden, presented by NOMA and Opéra Nouvelle
Sun, November 8th, 2020 at 2:00 PM
The New Orleans Opera and the New Orleans Museum of Art are thrilled to continue a three-year collaborative partnership with the Opéra Nouvelle series. This year’s theme is “Mozart and the Garden.” The first half of this one-hour event is a fantastical journey through Mozart’s greatest hits—Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte, Die Zauberflöte and, perfectly suiting the occasion, La finta giardiniera (set in a garden, about a noblewoman in disguise). The second half of the performance will feature a plethora of fun-filled English songs and arias with a surprise finale from a noteworthy composer who is living in New Orleans!
Tickets to the concert are FREE, courtesy of New Orleans Opera, and include admission to the Besthoff Sculpture Garden after the performance, courtesy of NOMA. Click on the link below for details on how to get your free ticket.
