L'amico Fritz

Spotlight Opera: Burg Theatre
March 1-3, 2019
Performed in English

Music: Pietro Mascagni
Libretto: P. Suardon
Inspired by: The French novel L'ami Fritz by Émile Erckmann and Pierre-Alexandre Chagrin

What the critics say: The ‘cherry duet’ between Fritz and Suzel in Act 2 is the opera’s pièce de résistance; if the plot is a sort of ‘vengeance-free’ Romeo and Juliet, this duet is suggestive of the mystery and enchantment of A Midsummer Night’s Dream…The happy ending may never be in doubt, but what it lacks in dramatic tension is more than compensated for by the opera’s glorious, irresistible music.
— Claire Seymour, Opera Today

Synopsis: Fritz is a wealthy and generous landowner who insists he will never marry. His friend Rabbi David, the local matchmaker, sets out to prove him wrong!

David Herendeen, Director
