The Italian Girl in Algiers:In Algiers, at the seaside palace of the bey Mustafa, his wife, Elvira, complains that her husband no longer love her; her attendants reply there is nothing she can do. Mustafa himself bursts in. Asserting he will not let women get the better of him, he sends Elvira away when she complains. Mustafa says he has tired of his wife and will give her to Lindoro, a young Italian at the court, to marry.
From there, events only keep escalating and weave into a tangled web of lust and intrigue that can only be perfected by the brilliant performers at the Austin Lyric Opera.

Red Hot Patriot: The unsinkable Molly Ivins, Austin’s no-holds-barred newspaper columnist and best-selling author, is back to tell it like it is in a side-splittingly funny play. A true Texas original, Ivins was a sharp-tongued wit who skewered the “Lege” and the good ol’ boys who ran it with her unforgettable humor and wisdom. Written by twin journalist sisters, Margaret and Allison Engel celebrate Molly’s courage and tenacity – even when a complacent America wasn’t listening — in a play that is nothing short of kick ass.
