Viva la Mamma!

A Young Artists Program Production
Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall
At Benaroya Hall

Set to Donizetti’s highly melodious music, Viva la Mamma is a wild farce about the travails of an opera company trying to put on a newly composed show. Rehearsals are underway for the very serious opera Romolo ed Ersilia, but a madly temperamental prima donna and her fussy husband, who is also a singer, make life miserable for their colleagues. Her rival is Luigia, another soprano, whose aggressive mother, Agata (composed for and sung by a baritone), tries to substitute for a defecting tenor and throws the whole cast into confusion.


Tickets: $25 General Admission

Rehearsal Preview

Hear it from the Young Artists themselves: Viva La Mamma is..."a farce," "absurd," "Italian Gilbert and Sullivan," and downright "outrageous." Meet the characters, the Young Artists who sing them, and catch a glimpse of the comical plot along with additional commentary from the stage director and music director.
