Il signor Bruschino

Thank God for the Gotham Chamber opera, which mounted a glorious, delectable winter trifle in the form of Il Signor Bruschino, a one-act Rossini opera as clever and delightful as anything onstage now in New York. Set in 1960s Rome, Director Robin Guarino's fabulous version was a veritable homage to the films of Federico Fellini with beautiful costumes by Tony-winner Martin Pakledinaz and exquisite singing by a cast of newcomers.
