La Finta Semplice (The Clever Deceiver)

Friday, April 9, 2021

7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Moores Opera Center presents another live, in-person opera experience, La Finta Semplice (The Clever Deceiver) with performances Friday, April 9th at 7:30 PM and Sunday, April 11th at 2:00 PM. 

Music by W.A. Mozart | Libretto by Carlo Goldoni adapted by Marco Coltellini

Sung in the original Italian with projected translation over the stage

A little deception can be forgiven in the pursuit of love. In this charming and graceful comedy, a countess pretends to be more innocent than she really is to catch the eye of a wealthy man. This lovely comedy began Mozart’s career in opera and is filled with youthful high spirits and an abundance of catchy and tuneful arias. Come hear some of Houston’s only live, in-person opera this season!
