Artist / Program Description:
The Comic Intermezzo: light-hearted chamber operas and a full evening of fun. Founded in 1985, the Comic Intermezzo presents an evening of entertainment and introduces audiences of all ages to an extraordinarily popular art form of the 18th century: the intermezzo. These chamber operas are performed in an authentic reproduction of the time with period dance and costumes, and are accompanied by harpsichord and strings. The operas are performed in English. A comic introduction to the art form and to early opera can be given as part of each performance. The Comic Intermezzo has performed throughout North and Central America as well as Japan.
