Miami Music Festival: The Ghosts of Versailles
For the first time in Florida, Miami Music Festival proudly presents John Corigliano’s grand opera buffa, The Ghosts of Versailles. The spirits have come back to court; the court of Louis XVI that is! Marie Antoinette is upset about being beheaded, so her favorite playwright attempts to entertain her by continuing the adventures of his characters from The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro. This opera-within-an-opera goes awry when Figaro refuses to stick to the script and the playwright must come to the queen’s rescue and win her affection.
Miami Music Festival presents their 2018 season from June 5th to July 29th, which will host 250 students from over 25 countries selected from the most prestigious conservatoires and universities. The Festival consists of institutes of opera, orchestra, piano, and conducting, as well as the pioneering Career Institute.
