Opera by Request will be presenting a semi-staged version of a comic opera called “A chair in love” by Welsh-Canadian composer John Metcalf with libretto by Governor General award nominee Larry Tremblay. The plot revolves around an “urban angst” filmmaker who falls in love with a chair, and his faithful, if slightly jealous, dog who tries to save him from heartbreak.
The show will take place on Friday July 17th @ 7:30pm at the Array Space, and features William Shookhoff (music director and pianist), Abigail Freeman (Chair), Michael Robert-Broder (Truman), Gregory Finney (Dog), and Kim Sartor (Dogtor/Doctor).
Tickets for OBR’s production are available online at Eventbrite tickets.
