Meet the Cast: Seattle Opera’s ‘Count Ory’

Notorious skirt-chaser Count Ory and his merry-making mininos scheme their way into a medieval French castle by means of outrageous disguises, crazy coincidences, and narrow escapes. Plans are foiled, wine cellars are raided, and all is forgiven in this all-new, locally-built, Monty Python-inspired production filled with whimsical animation and vivid colors to start the Seattle Opera’s new season off with a bang. Let’s meet the cast, shall we?
