'Figaro' an artistic treat

Juneau Lyric Opera has produced many of the most important pieces of opera during its 35-year history. I distinctly remember the 1990s production of Carmen at Juneau-Douglas High School, in particular Kathleen Wayne's terrific performance in that title role. As I've followed this troupe over the years, enjoying their work, I was excited to take in "The Marriage of Figaro" as soon as I heard it was to be the spring production. I enjoyed last fall's "Mikado," but was not entirely smitten by its overall effect given the unevenness of that production.

'Marriage of Figaro' the highlight of trip to Juneau

I'm an early tourist from Alexandria, Va. My wife and I came to Juneau to take in the usual tourist experiences, but a serendipitous notion led us to attend a performance of the Juneau Lyric Opera's presentation of Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" on Friday night. It was more impressive than the helicopter tour to the glacier, which was mind-blowing by itself.
