Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre Young Artists will perform THE TELEPHONE by Gian Carlo Menotti


Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre Young Artists will perform THE TELEPHONE by Gian Carlo Menotti, a short one-act English-language comic opera at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, 410 3rd Ave SE, on Wednesday, June 13 at 1:00PM. This free performance is open to the public; no reservations required.


In the story of THE TELEPHONE, Ben (baritone) visits Lucy (coloratura soprano) at her apartment with the intention to propose marriage, but Lucy is stuck on the phone in a series of seemingly endless conversations. Ben, not wanting to miss his train, begins to try desperately to get Lucy off the phone to make his proposal in this hilarious one-act opera.
