The Telephone/The Human Voice: Two Short Operas From Sin City Opera
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for The Telephone/The Human Voice was Saturday May 10, 2014 / 8:00pm.
The two works focus on women at extreme moments of their relationships. One is at the beginning, afraid to say hello. The other is at the end and afraid to say goodbye. Each woman has one tool in common to help them make their journey: a telephone. The two stories will explore the themes of the telephone as a distraction, a shield, a weapon, and ultimately as an extension of our very selves, the ways we really talk—and don’t talk—to those we love.
Joining them on stage will be three of Las Vegas’ most brilliant opera voices, Marcie Ley, Athena Mertes, and Nathan Van Arsdale. This SCO production will be uniquely staged; the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Everyone from opera newbies to seasoned lovers of these two works should be sure not to miss this lush and provocative dual production as it’s never been presented before.
A portion of the proceeds from this production will be donated to Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern Nevada. www.varietysn.org
