    Audition Location:

Looking for the role of Ben. Lucy is already offered. Comical opera sung in English. Piano accompaniment + few instruments and fully staged.


All Ben wants to do is propose to his girlfriend, Lucy, before he leaves on a train trip. When he goes to her apartment and tries to propose, however, he finds himself interrupted by a constant stream of phone calls. As Lucy gossips with her various friends and acquaintances, Ben becomes more and more impatient, and at long last leaves the apartment and calls Lucy himself from a pay phone. Finally, he is able to propose, and she accepts. Before he leaves for his train, she sweetly reminds him to remember her telephone number. As relevant in today’s cell-phone-obsessed society as it was back in the day of rotary phones when it was premiered, The Telephone is a delightfully funny one-act opera that is approachable and enjoyable for opera newcomers and aficionados alike.
