The story of Thanksgiving hilariously told by changing the words of classical music masterpieces.
Open Classical presents an original comic opera by Mark Landson telling the real story of Thanksgiving (sort of) as told by changing the words of popular classical music masterpieces! Imagine if Monty Python had written an opera about Thanksgiving and had high quality professional opera singers do it. Well, that’s this show.
Robin Coffelt of TheaterJones said, “I laughed throughout the entire production and learned something about history besides.”
The show pilfers hit after hit from the opera and chorus repertoire, like Verdi’s Anvil Chorus, Handel’s Messiah, and Mozart’s Don Giovanni. The high quality professional cast are all veterans of opera companies around the US, including the Dallas and Fort Worth operas.
It will definitely be the most fun you've ever had at the opera, and most definitely the most you'll have ever laughed attending one!
