I, Cherubino Release, Oct. 15 - G.F. Skipworth
Wednesday, August 01, 2012  3:48:00 PM

by G. F Skipworth

One of opera's most charming characters receives an inclusive biography.

Mozart's masterful comedy, The Marriage of Figaro, was just the beginning. G.F. Skipworth takes the adolescent charmer, Cherubino, from childhood to old age in a jaw-dropping look at this iconic figure.

We know him as a poor teen, always getting caught in the wrong place, trying to acquire some info on the notion of love. Destiny, however, has much bigger ideas for this ingenious boy, and once he's off, there's no stopping him.

You don't need to know the opera, but if you watch Maria Ewing sing "Voi che Sapete," in which the poor page boy is singing to the Countess, you'll understand the problem. And don't say you're not a fan of opera. There are dozens of kinds, and you might not have seen this one. Give Maria three minutes, and you'll be hooked.

Find out what really happened to these oddballs, all thrown together into the Casa Almaviva. The author has conducted the opera, and has sung the roles of the Count, Bartolo and Figaro, so he knows what he's talking about when he says that these people are certifiable, especially this amazing kid.
