The Telephone Aug 10
August 10, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Davenport House Museum, 324 E State Street
Gian Carlo Menotti’s one-act opera The Telephone tells of a romance between woman and… technology! Written in 1947, a year after the first mobile phone call in history, this short comedic piece explores how the ability to talk to someone miles away sometimes prevents us from talking to someone in the same room.
Guests will enjoy pre-opera entertainment as our Festival Artists perform other telephone-related pieces, accompanied by the presentation of Menotti’s 30-minute opera, The Telephone. This performance will be followed by a light supper and wine reception.
Sponsored by Julia and Wesley Krulic and presented in partnership with the Davenport House Museum.
