A fusion of comic opera and fresh new writing
Following Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci at last year’s Grimeborn, irrational theatre return with an innovative and quirky fusion of comic opera and new writing.
A wedding proposal seems to be getting hindered by the constant interruption of phonecalls in The Telephone (L’amour a Trois) by Gian Carlo Menotti. In Sullivan’s Cox and Box, two men unknowingly share the same room until they discover their landlord’s trick. The two operas are matched with a new comic play, Cycle, about a neighbourly dispute over a bicycle.
A real treat for opera and new writing lovers, these three little gems make for a playful and fun-filled evening at the festival.
