(in)Sincerely Yours features three short contemporary chamber operas about love, lust and longing.


Dinner for Three by Michael Ching is a tale of infidelity gone very, very wrong for all parties involved with a hilarious twist. We get to eavesdrop on a conversation by a jealous soprano and a mezzo during an intermission in Tony Solitro’s She’s Fabulous. The show takes a more serious note with Samuel Barber’s classic, A Hand of Bridge, where two seemingly happy couples play bridge and confessions start to spill about what they would really be rather doing. True to L’arietta Productions’ style, (in)Sincerely Yours – 3 Contemporary Operas on Lust, Lies & Longing brings you small operas with big, big drama.
