FIGARO!

Collaboration is at the heart of every musical endeavor. The University of Louisville took this spirit to new levels with a cross-Atlantic production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro with the Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice, Poland. ¬†Filmmaker Dan Schaefer saw the perfect opportunity to capture this journey, literally, on film. The result is FIGARO! Living in the Moment of a Character, and will premiere on Saturday, February 13 at 7:30pm at Comstock Concert Hall, University of Louisville School of Music.

Michael Ramach, co-director of the opera program at U of L, and Nathan Wilson, a cast member in the prodcution, talked with Daniel Gilliam about the collaboration from beginning to end and the documentary.
