Berkeley Chamber Opera presents Menotti's Opera The Consul

July 16, 2017
2:00 pm
Berkeley Hillside Club

With a subject as relevant today as it was in 1950, Gian Carlo Menotti brings to life the horror of a family fleeing political persecution in their home country. Faced with an endless and inhumane vetting process for visas, they endure the agony of an uncertain future. The opera won a pulitzer prize for music and ran on Broadway for nearly 8 months in 1950. "In endless waiting rooms the hour stands still, the light goes pale and thin, the heart is dead. Leave the doors unlocked and light the lamp within. Give us back the earth and make us free" -Menotti
