Behind the Curtain: Arabella


Look behind the curtain to see what it takes to bring innovative opera to the stage. Get the inside scoop from members of the cast and creative team and explore the music, history and design of Arabella. Minnesota Opera’s new Head of Music, Rob Ainsley, will lead the exploration, joined by the stars themselves. Soprano Jacquelyn Wagner (Arabella), bass-baritone Craig Irvin (Mandryka) and soprano Elizabeth Futral (Zdenka) will give intimate performances of excerpts and discuss their characters.
