Premiered in 1664, Molière’s witty comic satire – originally subtitled “The Hypocrite”– focuses on Tartuffe, a scheming religious fraud who ingratiates himself in the affluent household of gullible Orgon, spouting pieties while secretly trying to seduce Orgon’s wife. Orgon promises that Tartuffe will marry his daughter and become his sole heir, but the rest of the family sees through his facade and determines to expose him – will they be able to convince Orgon in time to prevent disaster?

Meadows Opera Theatre’s Opera Free For All: When the Night Wind Howls

When: 
Friday, November 3, 2017 - 1:00pm

Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever felt the presence of a deceased loved one? Do these spirits really exist in the physical world, or are they simply manifestations of our human fear, guilt, shame and loneliness that play tricks on our mind? In the hands of brilliant opera and musical theatre composers like Verdi, Britten, Menotti, Corigliano, Donizetti, Simon and Sondheim, these phantoms do indeed live and continue to haunt us, both on the stage and long after we leave the theatre.
