On this episode of the podcast, we hear from Central City Opera’s Music Director, John Baril, who is also conducting COSI FAN TUTTE this season. He delves deep into the opera, discussing what makes Mozart’s music stand out for him, how COSI compares with the other Mozart/Da Ponte operas, and the art of singing and conducting recitative. He also gives us a rundown of what’s going on in his head during an ensemble rehearsal…imagine an empathetic air traffic controller.
