“The Medium” and “The Telephone”: Two operas by Gian Carlo Menotti

Tessitoura perform a tale for Halloween that will make your spine tingle! The Medium attempts to make contact with those who are no longer alive, and when things go wrong, there is a tragic consequence. The antidote to this spooky story is the amusing opera, The Telephone, where communicating with the living proves to be equally as difficult, but with a happier outcome! 

Staged by some of the best young opera singers in the South West, with an orchestral accompaniment.
