The Italian Girl in Algiers

November 8 - November 16, 2014
Muriel Kauffman Theatre

Funny girl conquers man’s world.

Staged in a storybook setting and filled with a musical blend of comedy, energy, and style, Gioachino Rossini’s The Italian Girl sings. This adventure takes heroine Isabella off of the ship as it was originally written and into a biplane cockpit. It’s a story about an intelligent and quick-witted woman who crash-lands in an Arabic Society. Calamity ensues. In the end, she saves her boyfriend and the day as she takes on an ultra-traditional patriarchal society and wins.

Estimated runtime: 2 hours and 40 minutes including one intermission
Sung in Italian with English and Italian titles
