Figaro into Three DecembersWednesday, May 23, 2012 By Leonard Eureka and Anthony Mariani, Fort Worth Weekly
The Fort Worth Opera Festival marches on with two more superb productions.
Fort Worth Opera general director Darren Woods has a leg up in finding fresh young talent; since he serves off-season on the jury for the Metropolitan Opera’s regional auditions and directs a summer opera workshop for young singers each year in upstate New York. Not having a budget that allows for expensive stars, he finds the best up-and-coming talent around and brings it to Fort Worth.
The result last weekend was one of the most satisfying performances of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro you’re apt to see. On its opening night, the popular comedy sported a strong, stylish cast and was brilliantly directed by Eric Einhorn making his Fort Worth debut.
