Two One-Act Operas

October 31 and November 1-2 at 8:00 p.m., November 3 at 2:00 p.m.; Waller Hall Mainstage, IUP Performing Arts Center

Based on the play by Moliére, Signor Deluso is a comedy of layer-upon-layer of misunderstanding with young lovers, delusional neighbors, and a domineering Father. Considered a light-hearted but pointed satire of 1950s suburban sophistication and family life, Trouble in Tahiti follows housewife Dinah and businessman Sam through a typical day of married life.
