Overview

Whatever your opera exposure or level of composure, join Mixolo and our cast of adventurous solos, with or without a plus-one, and Baltimore Concert Opera at their gilded home at the historic Engineer's Club of Mount Vernon, Baltimore, for their performance of L’Amico Fritz by Pietro Mascagni. Based on a French comedy by Emile Erckmann and Alexandre Chatrian, Mascagni’s L’Amico Fritz tells the story of the stubborn Fritz, a wealthy landowner who disdains marriage. His friend David, a rabbi and persistent matchmaker, challenges him to a wager, betting that the bachelor will cave to marriage. Enter Suzel, the enchanting daughter of Fritz’s steward. Will Fritz lose his cool and his bet? Or will he let Suzel marry a rival? Fans of Mascagni’s more famous and more frenetic Cavalleria Rusticana will delight in the idyllic charm of this opera, which was first performed in 1872 to rave reviews. Absent the lavishness of a fully staged opera, not to mention the price and the commute to DC - or NYC, Baltimore Concert Opera, manages to bring a stellar, all-professional cast of accomplished opera singers to their concert style performances. ABOUT BALTIMORE CONCERT OPERA: Baltimore Concert Opera performances are meant to be up close and personal. Guests settle in for a relaxed evening in the elegant Grand Ballroom of the Engineers Club, in the heart of historic Mount Vernon, with the added convenience of subtitles for the curious and the newbies. No judgment. A company founded by professional opera singers and opera lovers, they strive to provide an experience for opera lovers of all stages.
