Virginia Opera is back in Richmond this weekend, presenting Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" in the Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Energy Center Friday evening (4/1) at 8pm and Sunday afternoon (4/3) at 2:30pm.  Mozart's entertaining and joyful work is full of laughs, wooing, flirting and foolishness.  The music is a perfect compliment to the truly captivating and scandalous plot. 

The Richmond Symphony will be providing music from the pit for this performance, conducted by Artistic Director Adam Turner.  I caught up with the maestro to get a preview of this latest production.

Yours in good music,
Mike Goldberg Classical Music Host, VPM Music
