Opera Factory presents a double bill of comedy & drama with Leonard Bernstein’s American set ‘Trouble in Tahiti’ and Puccini’s deliciously outrageous ‘Gianni Schicchi’
Starring Guest Artist Andrew Conley and featuring award winning singers Jarvis Dams, Madison Nonoa, Filipe Manu, Kayla Collingwood, Clinton Fung, Christian Orgias and other emerging young singers.
Bernstein’s ‘Tahiti’ is a domestic tragi-comedy about the ups and downs of marital relationships with scenes narrated by a swinging Jazz trio. Puccini’s popular comedy ‘Schicchi’ (includes the famous soprano aria O mio babbino caro/O my beloved father) depicts falsely grieving greedy relatives plotting with the clever Schicchi for lost and found inheritance.
The music team is led by Rosemarie Barnes assisted by Tim Carpenter, Steve Crowcroft is Designer with Lighting by Rachel Marlow and Sally Sloman directs.
