Mia Noriega Searight as Marcellina – Returns to the Stage in "Marriage of Figaro"
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LA HABRA, Calif. - Apr 10, 2017 - Mia Noriega Searight has recently made her way back onto the opera stage. After earning her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees at Cal State Fullerton and doing graduate work in Early Music at the Longy School of Music, she shifted gears and went into the field of education, teaching music and multiple subjects to students of all ages. Although she never stopped performing with ensembles such as Pacific Chorale and the Jouyssance Early Music Ensemble, it is only within the past year that Mia has returned to the world of opera, singing with the Repertory Opera Company in Pomona and Riverside Lyric Opera.
Plan for a night at the opera in La Habra from May 5 to May 28, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5pm.
Regarded as one of the greatest operas ever written, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro) is a screwball comedy complete with disguises, surprises, and compromises. Figaro, the wily barber of Seville and part-time matchmaker, has finally fallen in love. But, like everything else in his life, it’s complicated. On the eve of Figaro’s marriage to Susanna, his master, Count Almaviva, sets his wandering eye on the lovely bride-to-be. Servant and master go head to head, and even the Countess Rosina gets in on the action when she learns of her husband’s desires. But is she embroiled in a dangerous liaison of her own? From the opening notes to the final curtain, Mozart’s score delivers a tangled love story with great farce and satire.
