UBC Opera Ensemble: A Night in Venice
The plot of this farcical, romantic comedy is as full of twists and turns as the city of Venice itself. The Duke of Urbino, a notorious womanizer, is bored in Venice when he meets Barbara, the wife of an elderly senator.
Flirtation and intrigue ensue during a Carnival ball, with a colourful cast of characters including a barber, fisherman’s daughter, macaroni chef, and a naval officer.
The men might try to dupe the women, but the women are too sharp to be fooled!
