European premiere.

The play takes place in Manhattan at the time of the Great Depression and revolves around an unhappy dinner organized by Millicent Jordan in a mundane setting and on the occasion of a visit by members of the English nobility, unaware that his list guests abound of people bound by business intrigue and romantic entanglements.

By adapting the humorous and biting piece of Kaufman and Ferber, the award-winning Pulitzer and Grammy Prize-winning composer, William Bolcom, and the famous librettist Mark Campbell have created a new opera that successfully combines American musical and opera.

More information is available on the official website of the festival.
