Join Opera Fusion for its performance of Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Medium, a haunting tale of Madame Flora, a fake fortune teller who becomes unhinged when she meets up with the supernatural.
The eerie plot includes sham seances in which Madame Flora’s guests think they’re communicating with deceased loved ones, as well as a phantom, a medium meltdown, a dark lullaby, a puppet theater, a confession and a shooting.
The opera, sung in English, has two 30-minute acts. For added fun, the company invites guests to come in their favorite costume or mask. At a post-show reception of wine and nibbles, Madame Flora will foretell and proclaim a costume contest winner; the prize will be two tickets to a future Opera Fusion show.
Tickets: $30, general seating, via OperaFusion.org and at the door.
