Yesterday the hotel echoed with soprano notes and the bustle of Volcano Theatre staff who were busily constructing sets for A Synonym For Love, the Gladstone-specific opera that will be traveling throughout the hotel August 19-31.
Based on what we heard in stairwell, we don’t need any synonyms–this is going to <3
Arranged specifically for the Gladstone, every single ticket sold for the opera will be specific to one of the three main characters. Each audience member will follow that character for the entire performance, making, in effect, three audiences that weave through the hotel.
Audiences will meet whenever there are duets or trios, or whenever one character is eavesdropping on another with scenes happening in stairways, bedrooms, hallways and bathrooms, alleyways and bars and more.
Don’t forget to join us for a pre-opera dinner and take advantage of the special A Synonym for Love Prix Fixe menu (advanced tickets here).
