Game Misconduct
Composer:Leslie Uyeda
Librettist:Tom Cone
Game Misconduct takes place in the seventh game of a playoff series between a Canadian and an American hockey team. The action begins in the stands of a Canadian arena, which is to be torn down after the Canadian team's final game. There are eight characters, all fans of the game. Larry (tenor) has been a vendor in his beloved arena for 20 years. He will lose his job when the arena is torn down. René (bass-baritone) is the father of the Canadian team's goalie. Blossom (soprano) is a knowledgeable, feisty hockey fan who loves the fighting in the game. Snake (tenor) and Sylvia (mezzo-soprano) are a middle-aged couple whose relationship is in trouble: Snake lives through hockey; Sylvia has loved hockey but yearns for more. Hugo (baritone) is a visitor to the city. He is a well-heeled, obnoxious fan from Anaheim. Trish (mezzo-soprano) is a neophyte hockey fan attending her first game. Rita (soprano) is a young but longtime hockey fan. The stories of these characters are told against the backdrop of this sudden death game. Win or lose, nothing will be the same at the end of the game for any of these fans.
