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.

Reviews & Ratings
Written entirely in poetry, spoken word, verse and music, this is a play about a young woman who comes home after many years to visit her parents. She finds herself alone, and decides to take a trip Down the Rabbit Hole into her old bedroom. Here she discovers her childhood dress-up clothes, her old books, and her youthful obsession with Fairy Tales. Now, a somewhat jaded, successful writer living in NYC, she discovers that her naive illusions of “prince charming” and “happily ever after” have changed. The reality of life is much more difficult than the stories of her youth once led her to believe. She dives into her old fairy tales and this time takes a modern day look into what these characters really are all about.
You will meet the newly redefined Cinderella who comes clean on what life is really like living with “The Prince”.
-Goldilocks, who finds herself in quite an unusual predicament, reveals her deep dark secret.
-Snow White’s Evil Stepmother, who for the first time, tells her side of the story and is faced with news that will change her life.
-Belle (from Beauty in the Beast) who is now a school teacher by day, and a pole dancer by night.
- And of course, you will meet ALICE- Wonderland is not so innocent after all, as she shares the night that led her into womanhood!
