Sin City Opera teams up with Off-Strip Productions to perform two one-act operas at the Onyx Theatre. The two operas are thematically related, each having plots that center around telephones, and the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Gian Carlo Menotti's comic The Telephone presents an exasperating situation that is especially resonant now that we all have mobile phones. Poor Ben has a very important question for Lucy, but his attempts to ask it are constantly interrupted by telephone calls. The dramatic tour de force The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine) by Francis Poulenc (performed in a new English translation) is a musical adaptation of Jean Cocteau's dramatic monologue of the same name.

The event will be coordinated by John Beane, Artistic Director of the Insurgo Theater Movement.
24-hour theater, the theater form that sees a show written, directed, rehearsed and performed in 24 hours or less, has been the subject of an intense international revival, with performances at the Old Vic in London and 24-Hour Play project ongoing on Broadway.
The plays – five of them, each about 10 to 12 minutes long – will be performed on September 8th, beginning at 8 PM. Suggestions on the theme for the pieces will be taken online at www.insurgotheater.org starting August 20th. The random drawing from all the entries, held the night before the show, will dictate the theme. An Insurgo original addition – unused theme ideas will be drawn and used to create original songs for the performance.
