The MMF Opera Institute’s Studio program presents this rare French gem of endearing comedy, “the song of Fortunio.” As a young clerk, Fortunio seduced the wife of his employer with the help of a particularly alluring song. Now as an old lawyer, he begins to suspect that his own young wife might be carrying on a clandestine affair with his young employee, Valentin. Mischief and carrying-ons are afoot, as they all happily reveal that Fortunio’s “song” has lost none of its efficacy.
The MMF Opera Institute is comprised of passionate young singers from the world’s leading conservatories and young artist programs, undergoing varied and intensive training designed to develop the full scope of skills expected in the professional arena. The Opera Institute is designed to give singers "real-time" experience learning and producing professional-level concerts and events.
