About this Event
Simpson Productions presents a double bill of two comedic operas, The Telephone by Gian Carlo Menotti, and A Hand of Bridge by Samuel Barber with a libretto by Menotti. Both one-act pieces explore life and love in the 20th century. Quirky characters stumble through commonplace occurrences, like chatting with a loved one or getting together with friends. Menotti’s and Barber’s operas remain timely and fun and will leave modern audiences laughing.
