"WHO KNEW OPERA COULD BE SO MUCH FUN?" ~ Howard Cohen, Miami Herald
Baroness Vladka von Loudenstimme has had a long career on the opera stage but for how much longer is anyone's guess. She's still got the pipes but she likes to soak them in booze whenever she can - as in during every performance. So she hires the younger Southern belle Gwendoline Josephine Bellevoix Bouvier, who fancies herself French and cultured but who grew up in Boar Tush, La., to sing for the audience so she can sprint off stage for a nip.
One pianist named Paige Turner, 18 costumes, a horned helmet, spear, light saber and a lotta Puccini later, the diva duet becomes a duel. The aim is laughter. That's the premise of Duelling Divas, a comedic entree into the world of grand opera.
