Need a little opera in your life? Fear not, the Brecksville Theatre on the Square has just the answer. Producer Don Albainy and stage director Matty Sayre are bringing opera back to the Greater Cleveland area with The Telephone and Edison Invents – two one-act operas that will be presented at the Brecksville Theatre on the Square on Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21, at 7:30 PM. Located on the corner of Routes 21 and 82, Brecksville Theatre on the Square was founded in 1975 by Jeannette Winter and is a theatre for all ages, located in Brecksville’s historic Old Town Hall. The company offers theatre and drama classes, as well as scholarship opportunities and outreach programs. These are the first operas that the company has ever produced. The comedy The Telephone features Lucy and her boyfriend, Ben. Unfortunately, Ben is caught in a love triangle with Lucy and title character. We’ll see what happens when Ben tries to break up the affair and the lengths he goes to in order to take back his Lucy. The late Gian Carlo Menotti composed the opera. Mark Wanich sings the role of Ben and Rebecca Freshwater, that of Lucy. Composed by Robert S. Cohen (Suburb: The Musical, Alzheimer’s Stories, etc.) with libretto by Hershel Garfein (Elmer Gantry), Edison Invents explores the life and work of Thomas Edison confronting the dichotomy between his personal and professional lives. Baritone James Love will sing the role of Thomas Edison. The operas are presented for free, but audience members are encouraged to reserve tickets via the Brecksville Theatre on the Square web site at btots.org.
