Pensacola Opera presents
Gian Carlo Menotti’s 1940’s two-act opera, The Medium, is the dark and eerie tale of Madame Flora, a con-woman who cheats her clients through staged séances with the help of her daughter, Monica, and a mute orphan boy, Toby. Madame Flora descends into madness when she experiences a true ghostly encounter and, unable to grasp what is happening to her, lashes out in drunken rage—ultimately resulting in a tragic murder.
Menotti’s score features haunting melodies that depicts both the love and anger of the strange world this cast of characters inhabit. This intimate, black-box production of The Medium will feature Eliza Bonet as Madame Flora, Ariana Wehr as Monica, Eamon Pererya as Toby and Matthew Konopacki as Mr. Gobineau. Maestro Jerome Shannon will conduct and Dugg McDonough will provide stage direction. Join us for a spine-chilling opera experience you’ll never forget!
