Lend Me a Tenor
August 17 - September 16$18 – $28
It’s the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. Tito Merelli (David King-Gabriel) is a world-famous tenor. He’s been hired to perform at the 10-year anniversary season opener. Everyone waits in great anticipation of the famous singer’s arrival. The opera’s Executive Director Henry Saunders (Don Matthews) and his personal assistant Max Garber (Chris Hamby) know that this event will put the Cleveland Opera on the map. Maggie, (Mia Gaskin) is Saunders’ star-struck daughter, and she is transforming the Cleveland Hotel lobby into a shrine for the singer. Tito Merilli and his volatile wife, Maria (Rose Passione) arrive in a flurry of photographers and delirious opera guild ladies (Lauren Blair, CJ Reid and Catherine Hansen). Dancing maids and bellhops whisk Merilli to his suite and the multiple door-slamming farce is off and running!
