The Italian Girl in Algiers

Never Underestimate Her

Rossini explored the comic possibilities of the relationship between the European and Middle Eastern cultures. The result was one of his finest and funniest comedies, set to music of enormous vitality. It was an immediate smash hit. The composer himself described its giddy audiences as “even crazier than I am,” and Richard Strauss later said he was “mad with enthusiasm” for it. Enjoy a series of madcap machinations worthy of the Marx Brothers, with music to match.

Our pop-up book production of The Italian Girl in Algiers has been just as popular as the opera itself. Since its 2002 premiere, the production has been winging its way around the continent from San Francisco, Calgary, St. Paul, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Kansas City, and many places between. Our Italian Girl has been updated to the early 20th Century, with a heroine who is a clever aviatrix, ready to save the day. It touches down at its home field for just five performances, so book your passage now!
