ISO Presents Comic Opera

Professional singers join FSC students on stage

The Imperial Symphony Orchestra’s annual opera production welcomes opera professionals to Lakeland for a two-week rehearsal and performance schedule including special workshops for students. Puccini’s hilarious Gianni Schicchi, sung in English, is a comic opera based upon an incident in Dante’s Divine Comedy where Schicchi is condemned to Hell for impersonating the rich Buoso Donati in order to make Donati’s will favorable to Schicchi. The short, one act opera will be preceded by famous choruses with Lakeland Choral Society, Christina Dominski Sale (mezzo-soprano) and Mark Thomsen (tenor).
