  • Westminster Opera Theatre presents an evening of opera celebrating the complexity of different types of relationships. Performing the following short works by modern composers: A Flourish of Green, Missy Mazzoli Written in 2013 with a libretto by Mark Campbell, this "mini-opera" was inspired by Day Four, Story 5 of Boccaccio's Decameron. Avow (An Opera in One Scene), Mark Adamo This opera acts as a sort of sequel to Samuel Barber's Hand of Bridge. In it we are reunited with David. It is 40 years later, and his son is getting married. The opera sketches the emotions experienced on a wedding morning by an ambivalent bride, her avid mother, the haunted groom, the glib, daft celebrant and the ghost of the groom's father. Service Provider, Christopher Weiss and John de los Santos A modern day farce complete with infidelity, bad cellphone etiquette and a witty waiter. The work was written in 2015 for Washington National Opera's American Opera Initiative. Trouble in Tahiti, Leonard Bernstein A day in the life of a young suburban couple struggling through an unhappy marriage.
