The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Visit a black box theatre for an intimate evening of four American one-act operas. In Menotti’s The Telephone, constant calling interrupts a young man’s intentions. In Barber’s A Hand of Bridge, four card players share their fears, hopes and frustrations. In Moore’s Gallantry you will witness a television soap-opera opera (complete with a live soap commercial); and in Hoiby’s Bon Appétit! you’ll savor the words of Julia Child in a transcript of how to bake the perfect French chocolate cake.

All four operas are performed in English with English captions. 
Approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, with one intermission.

Join up for these slices of life at The Gregory K. and Mary Chomenko Hinckley Studio Theatre, and enjoy complimentary chocolate cake after the performance.

Listen for the expertly compact composition of each piece—filled with character, expression and wit.
