About this show

September, 1934 - the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company--world-famous tenor Tito Merelli is to perform Otello, his greatest role, at the gala season-opener. The chaos begins the moment he arrives, far too late to rehearse. His fiery-tempered wife discovers a girl in his closet, writes a good-bye note, grabs her fur and leaves him. Already on his way through a bottle of wine, Tito accidentally takes a double dose of tranquilizers, which mix with the booze and he passes out. His pulse plummets and the "Dear John' letter is mistaken for Tito's suicide note. The grand night is ruined unless there is a way for the dead singer to deliver the performance of his life! Special Press Opening: Tuesday, September 12th at 8:00 P.M.
