SITE-SPECIFIC FIGARO A SUCCESS!
The Marriage of Figaro
at the James J. Hill House in St Paul, Minnesota
produced in partnership with the TWIN CITIES OPERA GUILD

The parallels were obvious: life in the Hill House in the early 20th century, and the upstairs/downstairs adventures of Susanna and Figaro.
