Madame Flora, a fraudulent medium, falls prey to the very superstition she has inculcated in the clients who come to her séances. Her disintegration into madness and violence underpins Menotti’s electrifying libretto and score. Anna Theodosakis directs this new production conducted by Sandra Horst and designed by Patrick Du Wors, with costumes by Lisa Magill. As a curtain raiser, Michael Patrick Albano directs The Telephone, Menotti’s satire on society’s enslavement to the modern world’s most intrusive invention.
