Ensemble: TX State Opera Theatre: "Speed Dating Tonight!"
Ensemble Series presents TX State Opera Theatre, "Speed Dating Tonight!", by Michael Ching
Directed by Dr. Samuel Mungo, Conducted by Kristin Roach
Performing Arts Center Patti Harrison Theatre
As the title states, the story is a night of Speed Dating, where bar patrons sit at a table meeting potential partners very briefly- say 5 minutes- then move to another table. at the end of the evening, they have met 10 or so potential suitors and can contact those in whom they are interested.
This piece received its World Premiere in Summer 2013, and has had 7 productions in a year, with 15 more planned in the coming year, unheard-of numbers for a new opera.
Join Texas State Opera Theatre as we explore love, lust, desire, and the occasional oddball at Anthony’s Bar in a hilarious new American opera, Speed Dating Tonight!
