The Chamber Opera Players of Los Angeles presents FREE a double bill of two murderous chamber operas- the World Premiere of the one act opera "The Last Silent Voice" by LA's own George N. Gianopoulos and the American classic one act opera "Three Sisters Who are Not Sisters" by Ned Rorem.
Don't miss out on the chance to see these two crazy operas side by side!
"The Last Silent Voice" gives us a glimpse into a world where everyone has lost the ability to speak and therefore communicate. However, one couple remains unaffected. The woman is frightened and doesn't know if she can live in a world of silence, but surprisingly, the man is relieved to be rid of the constant noise. How will they cope in this new world, and who will have the last silent voice?
"Three Sisters Who Are Not Sisters" is a surreal, non-linear murder mystery in which three sisters (who are not sisters) and two brothers (who ARE brothers) decide to play a game of murder. Through the duration of the opera, each character will end up both dead and alive. No one knows who the murderer is, but each thinks it is himself. Are they actually alive, or have they all been dead from the beginning? Come and decide for yourself.
COPOLA has assembled a great cast comprised of soprano Ariel Pisturino, baritone E. Scott Levin, tenor Jon Lee Keenan, mezzo-soprano Jessica Mamey, and soprano Christa Stevens. Our director and accompanist are Josh Shaw and Stephen Karr, artistic and musical director of Pacific Opera Project, respectively. They are also thrilled to welcome back the conductor of the Orange County Symphony, David Rentz.
The evening will be filled with great music and singing, and lots of fun!
