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.

'Henry V' runs a full 2:50 with one 15 min intermission [snacks sold & some guests brought their own]. Considering the small space, the lighting/sound/costumes are very effective and lend atmospheric substance to a production with minimalist sets.
The acting was good and I was drawn into the familiar plot quite easily.
The theatre was very easy to find and is in a strip mall with ample free parking. The marquee above the entrance is well lit and easy to see from a distance. You will enter through, how shall i put it?...an adult themed retail shop [fun/campy] and can access will call with the cashier behind the counter. Once your hand is stamped you proceed down a short hallway into the actual 99 seat/8 row theatre and select your own comfortably padded seat w/cup holder.

“Wild-west avante-garde theatre.” -Las Vegas Review-Journal
“Vividly violent and ferociously tender…the most impressive performance I have seen in Las Vegas this year, whether on or off the strip…” - _Joe Brown, Las Vegas Sun _
“Straight up – it is time to remember honor and glory,” explains John Beane. “We are presenting this, the most heroic of the histories, as a reminder of potential. We have spent the last season exploring the underbelly, rolling in the dirt, the sexual, the beautiful – it is time to remember where we come from. The quest for the divine. And the idea of victory in even the most impossible circumstances…”
