Description

The Marriage of Figaro has it all – comedy, machinations, power struggles between elite and working classes – made human by some of Mozart’s most beautiful arias and operatic ensembles. 

Figaro and Susanna, servants to the Count and Countess Almaviva, are preparing for their upcoming nuptials. They very soon find out that their master, the Count, has his eyes on Susanna, and plans to pull a political betrayal that would end in his having Susanna for himself on her wedding night. Figaro is furious when he learns from his bride that the Count has tried to seduce her, and Susanna is frightened, but determined to make things right. What ensues is an opera full of antics to ensure that the master learns his lesson, and Susanna and Figaro may marry happily, in peace!

Peach State Opera (PSO) is Georgia's premier opera touring company, bringing accessible, audience-friendly opera classics to under-served communities since 2009. These condensed favorites are presented in English, making them attractive to both the veteran opera lover and the novice. We have been touring for ten years and have developed a wonderful opportunity for communities which don't have access to the pleasures and musical enchantment of a local opera company. When possible, we invite local community, college, or high school groups to participate in the production as the chorus or dance ensemble.

We are a professional company that hires professional performers while giving emerging artists opportunities as well. In appropriate productions, PSO collaborates with local high schools and colleges, joining us in supporting roles as members of our opera chorus, dancers, stage crew, and front-of-house team.

Our past productions include Puccini's La Boheme and Madame Butterfly, Rossini's Cinderella, Mozart's Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte, and Magic Flute, Donizetti's Elixir of Love, and Bizet's Carmen. PSO also offers an opera "sampler" production called Operatizers, a shorter program in a concert setting featuring classic arias, duets, trios, and ensembles from a variety of operas. We even produced a virtual Operatizers Gala during COVID-19 to much success!

PSO has performed for audiences in Atlanta, Jonesboro, Brunswick, Rome, Savannah, Moultrie and throughout the southeast. We are returning to our usual touring format after a virtual season with Mozart's beloved The Marriage of Figaro in 2022. This will be presented in Brunswick, GA, Clarkston, GA, and Newberry, SC. Our touring production for 2022-2023 will be Johann Strauss' charming operetta, Die Fledermaus.
