The Northwestern University Opera Theater production is directed by Joachim Schamberger and features the Northwestern University Chamber Orchestra conducted by Patrick Furrer. Hector Berlioz’s comic opera “Béatrice et Bénédict” is based on Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” This is a story of matchmaking, incorporating dialogue and scenes from Shakespeare’s play, creating a fluid dramatic progression in service to the genius of both the Bard and Berlioz. The music is sung in French with supertitles; dialogue is performed in Shakespearean English.
