Besotted, Deliciously Delusional Opera

Besotted, Deliciously Delusional Opera

Besotted is a fifty minute comic opera written to show off the talents of New Zealand soprano Allison Cormack and Australian performance artist, Linda Calgaro.

Lucinda Bellini (Allison Cormack) develops a delusional passion for the young plumber, Jake, who is fixing a blocked S-bend in her kitchen. Lucinda tells her story through operatic arias by Puccini, Mascagni, Verdi, and Weber while her psychotherapist, Portia Whetstone (Linda Calgaro) attempts to make her client see reason. Accompanied by well-known Nelson pianist, Pauline Boyd, and a chorus of young 'Jakes', Besotted promises laughter, exquisite arias and plumbers as you have never seen them before.

Please note that Besotted is currently a workshop presentation and is being developed for the NZ festival circuit. The production team are very keen to receive your feedback after the performance.
