Mozartian Chamber Treats

Even though it’s cold outside, the Opera is still providing cheerful winter goodies to consume. This dessert consists of three courses. Mozart’s one-act theatre parody, Der Schauspieldirektor, shows how the life of a theatre director is certainly not an easy one when several singers are vying for the prima donna spot. The second piece, about the wives of King Henry VIII, a monarch who was liberal in dispensing both kisses and death, is a production that employs text by Shakespeare and music by the king himself, and not without a bit of black humour, either. And finally: The Telephone. A boy wants to confess his love to a girl, except the girl is next to the telephone, and any time it rings, she has to pick it up. Through a charming opera from the 1970s, the audience will get to see a problem that has since grown to serious proportions.
