Fully Staged Work>
On Site Opera partners with The Atlanta Opera’s Discoveries Series to bring Mozart’s The Secret Gardener (La finta giardiniera) to life in a new site-specific co-production. Performances will mark a bi-city first for both companies. Written by an 18-year-old Mozart, The Secret Gardener is a story of love, madness, and redemption that unfolds in the lush setting of a beautiful garden. Disguises and mistaken identities abound in Mozart’s charming tale of a triple love triangle!
The production features a new English translation by Kelley Rourke and a new reduced orchestration by Yoni Kahn and Thomas Carroll.
