Opera Theatre Company : Susanna’s Secret

The stylish and sophisticated Susanna’s Secret (Il segreto di Susanna), is a comedy opera built on marital misunderstanding, full of fun and frothiness. A man suspects his wife is having an affair when he smells cigarette smoke from her clothes, and strives to discover her secret with hilarious consequences. OTC OPERA HUB artists Rachel Croash (soprano) and Rory Musgrave (baritone) star in Wolf-Ferrari’s opera, which is wryly observant about the secrets that couples keep. Tom Creed (DEEP, KAF 2014) directs, with Andrew Synnott conducting the OTC touring ensemble. Sung in English, in a new translation by Tom Swift, this is a rare opportunity for opera lovers to see this classic short work, and a perfect introduction to opera for newcomers.
