Disguises, cross-dressing, mistaken identities and people jumping out of windows are all par for the course in Mozart’s energetic, light-hearted romp through the day of a wedding ceremony. The Goshen College theater and music departments will collaborate to present the composer’s comic opera “The Marriage of Figaro” in Umble Center on March 28, 29 and April 4 at 8 p.m., and March 30 and April 6 at 3 p.m. (ASL interpreted).
