A double bill

Center for New Music

Join Opera on the Spot for cabaret-style performances of two one-act operas, Hand of Bridge (Barber) and The Old Maid and the Thief (Menotti). In both of these quirky and lesser-known works, appearances can be deceiving: an otherwise ordinary hand of bridge becomes slowly fraught with desire, and the niceties of small talk give way to feelings of resentment and desperation. Deal yourself in, and join us for an immersive evening of operatic antics! Tickets are $20/ $15 for students and can be purchased at the link below. Cast: A Hand of Bridge, by Samuel Barber, libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti David, a florid business man Sergey Khalikulov, baritone Geraldine, his middle aged wife Jordan Amann, soprano Bill, a lawyer Kevin Gino, tenor Sally, his wife Claire MacKenzie, mezzo-soprano The Old Maid and the Thief, music and libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti Miss Todd Emma Lacenski, mezzo-soprano Laetitia Emily Thebaut, soprano Miss Pinkerton Aisha Campbell, soprano Bob Sergey Khalikulov, baritone
