The seasoned eye of stage director John Moriarty, Central City Opera’s Artistic Director Emeritus, adds distinction to this one-act work. Signor Deluso features the talents of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Program.
“Through a structured plot with little exposition, this hilarious tale of two lovers is told effectively through an action-packed, romantic comedy opera,” says Bronwyn Schlaefer, Stage Manager of Signor Deluso. Bronwyn also serves as a 2011 Festival Staffer and as a Stage Management Assistant for Central City Opera’s North American Premiere of Händel’s Amadigi di Gaula this summer. Also assisting in the production of Signor Deluso are Assistant Stage Manager Samantha Apgar, Lighting Designer Nick Davidson, Props Supervisor Jessic Rosenlieb and Costume SupervisorJanetta Turner.
