Baroque Opera Previews: A Day on the Town, A Night in Hell

April 14, 2011

The Early Music Guild office is buzzing with activity this week in preparation for the upcoming baroque opera production “A Day on the Town, A Night in Hell”.  With three performances (Friday, April 15, Saturday, April 16, and Sunday, April 17), we hope everyone will have the opportunity to see this exciting show.

Tickets are going fast but you can still get yours here, in person at the Moore Theatre box office, or by calling 877-784-4849.

Will Rose wrote a highly engaging article describing what audience members might expect when they attend this weekend’s performances of “A Day on the Town, A Night in Hell”:

An ambitious blend of comedy and tragedy, told through baroque opera and ballet:  An upcoming collaboration of the Early Music Guild, Spectrum Dance Theater, and Seattle Theatre Group attempts to do it all, with two casts, different sets, composers, directors, and sensibilities, and a complex technical setup. Will it prove a recipe for triumph or disaster? – Will Rose, crosscut.com
