The NAFA School of Music proudly presents a double bill of Carl Maria von Weber’s Abu Hassan and Joseph Haydn’s La Canterina, directed by Andy Pang.

In Weber's Abu Hassan, the titular character and his wife, Fatime, face bankruptcy. With debt collectors headed by the greedy Omar at their doorstep, the couple come up with a plan to deceive the Sultan and his wife in order to repay their debts.

In Haydn's La Canterina, Gasparina and her "Theatre Mother" Apollonia live a life of luxury, making use of Gasparina's beauty to con money from her two lovers: the Aristocrat Don Ettore and the Maestro Don Pelagio. All is well for the two women, as long as the two men never meet.

Will Abu Hassan and Fatime pull off their deception? What happens when the Maestro meets the Aristocrat? Come on down to find out more!
