#TahitiBLO

A jazz trio sings of the charmed perfection of suburban life in the 1950s. In the house, married couple Sam and Dinah argue over breakfast. Each privately wishes to restore kindness to their marriage, but their fight continues.

At the office, Sam confidently denies and grants loan requests. In her psychiatrist’s office, Dinah recalls a dream: she was in an overgrown garden, trying to find her way out, when she heard a voice promising to lead her to a quiet place.

At lunch, Dinah and Sam run into one another and each invents an excuse to hurry away. They reflect on the unhappy turn their relationship has taken.

Sam revels in his triumph at a handball game. After seeing a movie called “Trouble in Tahiti,” Dinah recounts how terrible it was, but gets caught up in the fantasy of it all. That evening, Sam returns home and wishes he did not have to go inside.

The trio sings of the idyllic twilight hours in suburbia. Sam and Dinah try to have an honest conversation, but quickly fail to connect. Growing desperate, he suggests they go to a movie. They prepare to leave, each wondering if a happier future lies ahead while the trio croons.

Dialogues of the Carmelites

Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, Poulenc’s opera dramatically brings to life the true story of the Martyrs of Compiègne, a group of Carmelite nuns. During the final dark days of the Reign of Terror their monastery is seized, their priests are condemned, and the women themselves face the guillotine rather than abandon their devotion to God’s work.

Music/Libretto by Francis Poulenc

Stage director: Cara Consilvio
Music director: Carol Rausch

After Life

After Life

The spirits of Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso, who both survived World War II in France, indulge in competitive sparring over art, politics, and their own legacies. The appearance of a third spirit, a nameless young Jewish woman who died in the Holocaust, cuts through the pretense with a searingly authentic wartime experience.

Presented by Loyola Opera Theatre and the National Opera Association.

Music by Tom Cipullo
Libretto by David Mason

Stage director: Cara Consilvio
Music director: Carol Rausch
