VIVA LA DIVA!, the 2011 TCNE Opera Production
This year's opera brings us behind the curtains of an opera company with waring prima donnas and the exasperated opera director Mr. Baton. In an attempt to regain control over his singers and to increase public interest, Mr. Baton holds an audition for a new star in the upcoming production. Amid the hopes and dreams of would-be opera stars and jealous chorus members, the reigning divas try to convince the director how unnecessary the audition is. Mr. Baton surprises them all by saying he has already found his new star...his secretary! Tension is high at the first rehearsal of the new production, but it seems like the new star is not as naive or innocent as she seems to be. Rivalry between the singers start again and it isn’t long before Mr. Baton finds himself back in the same situation that he first started with.
