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
Morphotic is the manifestation of Franz Kafka’s neurosis and self-loathing. It simultaneously explores his fictional work and wrestles with his real-life demons.
Cynthia Vodovoz stars as the writer and is joined by Insurgents Jason Morrison, Brandon McClenahan. F. Ed Knutson and guest artists Natascha Negro, Thom Chrastka, Derrick Stroman, Ariana Miner, and Sarah Spraker. The show features original soundscapes and projections, and choreography by Insurgent Jenna Wurtzberger. The production is created and directed by Insurgo Associate Artistic Director Shawn Hackler, written by Hackler and using works from Kafka.
“It’s ultimately that classic story of an artist,” says John Beane, Artistic Director of the Insurgo Theater Movement. “Hackler has crafted a feast that is visually and stylistically startling – but what we get to are the things that every man faces. What is an artist? What is a man? How much do we sacrifice for the ones we love before we diminish what they loved in the first place? What is our responsibility to the world?”
