Morris Robinson leads Mozart's comic opera!
Mozart's charming comedy opera is given a 20th century update to the Roaring Twenties, combining the elegance of inter-war Europe with the flashbulbs of old Hollywood. Taking place on the iconic Orient Express train traveling from Istanbul to Paris, two beautiful ingenues are held captive by a nefarious nobleman of the Ottoman royal family - meanwhile their two fiances are desperately trying to rescue them, racing against the clock! Helmed by guest artist James Robinson, the current Opera Theatre of St. Louis director, this sparkling production is part of the LA Opera's 30th anniversary season.
Star bass singer Morris Robinson has made his mark at the LA Opera in recent years with his recent performance in Norma, and various roles at companies across the country, making him one of the most sought-after singers in America today. He will be singing the role of henchman Osmin, a comic role.
