James Darrah Directs Bard SummerScape Production Of Mascagni's Iris

Jul 20, 2016

  Bard SummerScape’s 2016 season presents seven weeks of opera, music, theater, dance, film, and cabaret. 

The prime focus of these offerings is the 27th annual Bard Music Festival, exploring the life and times of Italian composer Giacomo Puccini. The rich arts and culture of turn-of-the century Italy inspires a revival of Pietro Mascagni’s art nouveau opera, Iris. 

The production at Bard boasts a new staging and sleek, edgy design and is directed by James Darrah.
