The Barns at Wolf Trap
Vienna, VA
Saturday, June 19 at 7:30pm

This June at The Barns, the audience will choose the outcome for this sublime yet brief Mozart masterpiece. A young man and woman fall in love while held hostage in a foreign land. Unfortunately, the heroine (Zaide) is also desired by the Sultan who has imprisoned them. The couple escapes but is recaptured. We don’t know if this opera was meant to end in tragedy or forgiveness, so be part of the audience and seize the moment to cast your vote and solve Mozart’s mystery!

Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow and directed by James Marvel (Return of Ulysses, 2009)
Scenic design by Erhard Rom and costume design by Mattie Ullrich (Ariadne auf Naxos, 2008)

Following the performance of Zaide, join Club 66 at Wolf Trap: Young Professionals Supporting the Arts and members of the Wolf Trap Opera Company for a very special Encore Cast Party event featuring delectable treats provided by Co Co Sala and wines provided by E. & J. Gallo Winery.
