Transgressive Theatre-Opera continues its fourth season with a double header of operatic intrigue and passion. The plot of Rossini’s comedy Count Ory (Le comte ory) is pure opera buffa. The titular count, a notorious libertine and scoundrel, and his crew of n’er-do-wells spend most of the opera trying to take advantage of the fact that most of the men in their area are away at war, leaving the ladies alone and, presumably, lonely for male company. The opera is sung in French (with English subtitles) the recitatives are re-created as dialogue, and spoken in English.
