Barbara Hocher as Carlisle Floyd ' s Susannah in another scene from the Opera Gala. From serious drama to comedy is a natural step in the spring, and the first week in May brought AN EVENING OF DONIZETTI. Scenes from two of the composer ' s comic masterpieces, DON PASQUALE and L ' ELISIR D ' AMORE, led off the evening, which highlighted the world premiere of a new revision of an early Donizetti comedy. LE CONVENIENZE ED INCONVENIENZE TEATRALE (or. Opera: Italian Style), dealt, appropriately enough, with the trials and tribulations attendant upon opera production! What more fitting way could there be to wind up a busy and exciting year for the Opera Theatre? Although the Opera Theatre ' s year was officially over, there remained one more production to be presented under the direction of Mr. Philips, whose final year at the Conservatory this was. On July 24, 26, and 27, members of the regular Conservatory Opera Theatre and students at the Castle Hill Summer School in Ipswich presented Mozart ' s COSI FAN TUTTE. As his last presentation with his students here, the completely restaged opera was a fitting swan song for Mr. Philips, and was warmly received by capacity audiences and the press. By moving the locale of the opera to British-occupied Victorian India, and using an English translation, the production was able to communicate more clearly the workings of Da Ponte ' s involved plot. The audience ' s response indicated its approval, and made COSI FAN TUTTE a grand finale to a blue- ribbon year for Mr. Philips and the Opera Theatre he has so capably class, instructing Diana Cole directed. 72
