When did you last really laugh out loud at an opera?

"This new production of Le comte Ory is pure musical theatre. It has so many plus points and is a good tip for audiences both from a musical as well as a theatrical perspective. When did you last really laugh out loud at an opera?" asked a reviewer, Petr Veber, on the website Brno město hudby.

The highlight of the season - the Czech premiere of Rossini's opera Le comte Ory!

Lock up your daughters, sisters and wives because the young Count Ory is here! With his French charm and alluring smile he is on the lookout for another woman to share passion and his undying love with. At the moment he has his sights on the lovely Adéle, who, however, does not reciprocate his interest, and to make matters worse, Hotel Formoutiers, where she is staying, is closed to men until the husbands and brothers return to the guests.
