Gian Carlo Menotti’s “The Telephone” and “The Medium”
July 27 & 28, August 3 & 4, 2019

These two short operas by Gian Carlo Menotti, known to many as the composer of Amahl and the Night Visitors, were first paired as a double bill when originally produced in the late 1940s.

The Telephone, or L’Amour à trois is a humorous look at the way the telephone became a third party in the romantic relationship between a young couple, Lucy and Ben. Written over seventy years ago, we can still relate to the way this ubiquitous invention plays a large role in our lives today! Featuring Brooke Schooley, Soprano, as Lucy.

The Medium is a darker piece, exploring the boundaries of reality for all involved in the drama. In today’s world, where more and more we are challenged to assess what is real and what is “fake news,” Madame Flora’s struggle with this issue leads to a sad and tragic ending. Featuring Janice Meyerson, Mezzo-Soprano, as Madame Flora.
