Review and photo by Larry Wagner, North Coast Photographer Guild
If you like opera, or even come close to liking it, you might want to see Opera Fresca’s latest, Barber of Seville. It is playing at Cotton Auditorium this Wednesday and Saturday at 7:30 PM.
The six leads are all up and coming stars from around the world – Venezuela, Spain, New York, etc and super talented. The staging is beautiful and the opera is very funny and approachable – no Wagnerian arias. I had the enjoyment of photographing the two dress rehearsals, then went on Sunday afternoon. I am going again on Saturday. It is amazing to see such talent in little Fort Bragg. (Bring a coat – it is cool in Cotton Auditorium).
The attached photo will give you a feel for what you are in for.
