Based on Georg Philipp Telemann’s Der Schulmeister.
Additional music, libretto, and singing translation by Rachel J. Peters
Presented Live on Zoom
Alice Tommasso (Stephanie Blythe), an internationally renowned contralto, expected to teach a virtual singing masterclass for the prestigious CCM (University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music). Her assistant, Ginger, erroneously booked her to teach for Community College of Middletown, Indiana. With Ginger currently in labor and thus unavailable, Robinetta (Laquita Mitchell), the latter CCM’s Liberal Arts administrator, tries valiantly to facilitate the class. Alice imparts her own philosophy of achieving superior artistry to an audience participating remotely and interactively in real time.
Our live and interactive digital production of Lesson Plan, adapted and expanded from Georg Philipp Telemann’s Der Schulmeister, is inspired by a certain popular celebrity-expert-led online course series and is tailored for the operatically curious.
