Unfaithfully based on the comedy by Ben Jonson
Music by John Musto
Libretto by Mark Campbell
Hailed by The Washington Post as "a masterpiece," Volpone is a madcap adventure of greed, lust, and just deserts.
For the past year, Volpone and his servant Mosca have executed a scheme whereby Volpone feigns dying in order to extract expensive gifts from greedy friends by promising that each will be named his heir. Having amassed a sizeable fortune in gold, Volpone and Mosca plan to leave this very evening for Genoa where they will start a new life.
