Boys and ghouls, this is an opera performance that is as sure to fright as it is to delight.
Little Opera Company is partnering with Flipside Opera to present 'Opera Fright Night'- a double bill including Gian-Carlo Menotti's 'The Medium' and Henry Mollicone's 'The Face on the Ballroom Floor'.
Oft-performed but mysteriously absent on recordings, Menotti's eerie opera 'The Medium' has materialized in its first recording in more than a quarter century. This two-act "musical drama" is about a fake psychic whose surprise encounter with the unknown leads to murder and mayhem.
'The Face on the Ballroom Floor' tells two tales, separated in time, but parallel in character and theme. Present-day Isabel is a singer in the Central City Opera chorus who dreams of singing Violetta in La Traviata. The beautiful Madeline is a saloon girl in a 19th-century gold camp. Both are loved by two men, and as the opera moves between centuries, the parallel plots come to the same tragic end - a timeless tale of love and jealousy.
Join us for this spooky double bill October 19-20, 2019 at Salle Antoine-Gaborieau, 2nd Floor of CCFM (340 Provencher Blvd.). Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for students.
