Comedy opera features symphony and soloists

A potboiler of a plot, the music of Mozart and eight operatic voices will join with the Federal Way Symphony this weekend in two performances of “The Marriage of Figaro.”

Shows are scheduled at St. Luke’s Church in Federal Way on Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

The orchestra, led by conductor Brian Davenport, and guest artists will be featured in the musical web of love, deception, intrigue and general highjinks in the concert version of the comedy opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Featured soloists are Diane Sweeney, Al McEachern, Michael Mueller, Lila Larson-Scholl, Linda Ellingson and Anna Kazakova. Rounding out the cast of guest artists will be Fred Sederholm and John Clynch, both Seattle operatic performers.

Also, Linda Choi of British Columbia, co-winner of the symphony’s recent Marjorie Easley Young Strings Competition, will perform Mozart’s “Violin Concerto Number 3.”

Tickets for each performance are available through the symphony office at 529-9857 and at Coffee Europa and Archie’s Diner at Brown’s Point. Ticket prices are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors. Admission is free for anyone 18 and under.
