A BLO adaptation of the Wolf Trap world premier production

The Inspector, John Musto’s witty comic gem boasts a melodic score and features a large and talented cast of established and versatile American dramatic singers. Basing the work loosely on Gogol’s 19th century farce, The Government Inspector, Musto once again teams up with librettist Mark Campbell to create a swaggeringly funny tale of bribery, fraud, corruption (and a little discreet pimping) in 1930s Sicily.

Jake Gardner, BLO’s Music Master in 2010’s Ariadne auf Naxos, stars as Mayor Fazzobaldi and joins internationally renowned Metropolitan Opera star and Grammy nominee Victoria Livengood as Sarelda. Boston-based soprano Meredith Hansen and tenor Neal Ferreira sing the young lovers Beatrice and Tancredi in a cast conducted by David Agnus. With Julius Ahn, Dorothy Byrne, David Cushing, David Kravitz, Nicole Rodin, Kathryn Skemp, and Michelle Trainor.
