Mary Feminear and Michael Adams Singing Together in Opera Omaha’s The Marriage of Figaro

The excitement is brewing!  Opera Omaha is ending this season with The Marriage of Figaro, and we had a lovely conversation with Michael Adams and Mary Feminear, who play the Count and the Countess in this beloved opera.  Mary and Michael are married in real life as well as their characters onstage, and it made for a great interview.  Our conversation was cut short because of technical problems, and we hope to talk with them again in the future.

Both of these Creatives are immensely experienced and talented and it was an honor to talk with them. 

Don't miss this famous and timeless opera, which is Directed by Dean Anthony and Conducted by Steven White.  

Performances are March 31st and April 2nd and ticket prices begin at $19. You can get your tickets to this beloved opera, The Marriage of Figaro at ticketomaha.com.   

Opera Omaha also offers their Opera in Conversation, The Art of Comedy: "Comedic Tropes at Types" which will be held at the Blackstone Theatre March 21st at 6PM.  And for a talkback after the opera, Opera in Conversation:  "After The Curtain Call" on April 4th at the Benson Theatre at 6PM.  These events are free of charge.
