Synopsis

MASQUERADE

(8 singers: 2 sopranos, 2 mezzo-sopranos, 2 tenors, baritone, bass-baritone)
A party is taking place at a country mansion. But it's not your ordinary dinner gathering or holiday celebration: it’s a masquerade. People from all walks of life come here to shed their outside selves, put on a mask and push the limits of erotic expression. Here our protagonists will face their deepest taboos. Three couples arrive excited and a bit scared. Roger (baritone) and Lisa (soprano) are in their early 40s, trying to heat up a cooling marriage. Julie (mezzo-soprano) and Bryan (bass-baritone) are in their 30s but already boastful veterans of sexual adventure. Kyle (tenor) and Tyler (soprano) are the youngest, an androgynous postgender pair who want to break through socially constructed barriers. Soon everyone is lost in strange scenarios in a honeycomb of baroque chambers. Mistaken identity leads to comic mishaps and surprising discoveries. By evening's end, our characters have gone on a journey that leaves them transformed.
