Markus Werba & Alex Esposito in Fenice's "Le Nozze di Figaro"

Markus Werba & Alex Esposito opening at La Fenice this week

They better have the sprinklers ready at La Fenice, because the famous theater is going to be on fire later this week. Luckily, not like the fires of 1774, 1836 and 1996, which literally burned the theater to the ground. This time the heat will be coming from Austrian barihunk Markus Werba as Count Almaviva and Italian barihunk Alex Esposito in their revival of Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro."

The two singers will share the stage in the first cast run of the opera beginning this Friday, October 14 and running through October 22. Visit the La Fenice website for additional cast and performance information. Here are Werba and Esposito singing some Mozart.

  1. I saw this production recently at the Fenice. Both of these singers were wonderful. However, it was sad to see them in such a less than wonderful production. The overall design...costumes, set and lighting were totally uninspired. The blocking and staging were very amateurish. I hope to be able to hear each of them in another production that deserves their talent.
