Our season opener is a fully staged double bill of two rarely performed Baroque gems,performed with chamber orchestra!
These pieces are both cantatas traditionally done in a concert setting without any staging, so our production is especially unique. Our modern day setting is in a coffee shop. Bored employees kill time with an intense game of Uno. Customers finally arrive — a father and daughter who debate if she should stop drinking coffee. But, who could possibly give up Dunkin…?
This show offers a fun and relatable perspective on the joys and stresses of everyday life. We guarantee lots of laughs — and da capo arias!
Reception on the Patio follows the Concert.
Presented by West End Lyric at BackRoom Boston
Produced by Bloch Performing Arts Inc.
