Just Opera presents: Gian Carlo Menotti's The Consul

August 27, 2017
2:30 pm
MACLA

Just Opera, a new and independent opera company, presents Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Consul for three South Bay performances only. The Consul is presented in English, with stage direction by veteran Bay Area artist Phil Lowery and music conductor Marie-Louise Catsalis, and features a strong cast of accomplished Bay Area singers. The Consul opened on Broadway in 1950; the plot centers on a woman and her political dissident husband who desperately seek to escape their totalitarian country, but instead get “extremely vetted” – and ultimately denied a visa and their aspiration for freedom. Following its Broadway run, The Consul enjoyed continued theatrical success in Europe, and earned Menotti a Pulitzer Prize for Music and New York Drama Critics’ Circle award for Best Musical. Its theme and message remain starkly relevant to our own times. Tickets are $30 (general admission); children 12 years and under admitted free of charge.
