Florida Grand Opera presents Daron Hagen's charming pastiche of three intimate scenes of life in the Big Apple. The opera is musically conversational with the first skit being fiery and romantic, following a woman living in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, coupled with an Italian immigrant who arrives to do maintenance work, and the romantic moment they share. The second tells the story of an Upper East Side woman getting a surprise visit from her brother. The third depicts a warm, domestic self-portrait of the composer and his spouse as new parents attempting to put their infant son to sleep after a night on the town.

Composed on his honeymoon in 1951, Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti paints an intimate picture of the troubled marriage of a young suburban couple Sam and Dinah, longing for love and the ability to communicate. As we follow their journey through a façade of overcompensation and materialism, Dinah sings one of the most famous mezzo-soprano arias, “What a movie!” depicting the movie Trouble in Tahitishe saw one afternoon. Emerging into a dreamlike sequence in which she immediately feels embarrassed for even conjuring the fantasy, we understand the yearning to escape within all of us. 

 

Signor Deluso is an over the top, one-act opera by composer and librettist Thomas Pasatieri. The opera contains love melodies, musical patter, and confrontations and harmonies of resolution. It is loosely based on Molière’s 1660 comedy Sganarelle, ou Le Cocu imaginaire (Sganarelle or “The Imaginary Cuckold”). Performed in English, this piece resonates with vivacious, over-the-top comedic characters, familial expectations, and exuberant lovers, all leaping to wrong conclusions.
