Le Comte Ory: "A Must-See"

Rossini's Le Comte Ory, currently being presented by the Wolf Trap Opera Company at The Barns at Wolf Trap, has garnered great reviews from both The Washington Post and The Washington Times:

"At the Barns at Wolf Trap on Friday night, Rossini's second-to-last opera (dating to 1828, a year before "William Tell") zipped along with the clockwork precision of Gilbert and Sullivan -- on amphetamines. There's not a wrong note in the whole production." -Mark J. Estren, The Washington Post

"The Wolf Trap Opera Company launched its impossibly entertaining version of Gioacchino Rossini's "Le Comte Ory" this past weekend, and it's a must-see." -TL Ponick, The Washington Times

You have two more chances to catch Le Comte Ory, this Friday, July 21, at 8 p.m. and this Sunday, July 23, at 2 p.m. Members of the Wolf Trap Opera Company will also join the NSO this Saturday, July 22 at the Filene Center, as they present Roméo et Juliette in Concert.
