Mini-0pera

 

The Coffee's Greener (a 'mini' comic opera) - Vocal Quartet - SATB - with Flute and Piano

A short, (twelve minute,) mini-opera which uses four characters: soprano, mezzo, tenor and baritone, with flute and piano accompaniment. Taking place in a coffee shop, the plot involves a young couple and an older couple who each look with envy on the other.

 

Most of it is melodic and tonal, however, there is a bit of dissonance at times for effect. The final quartet has a ragtime feel. It's fun!

Every time it has been performed here in Boulder, it has been a real crowd-pleaser. People love it.
