A show about failure, by two award-winning failures. After failing to win numerous awards and after many unsuccessful funding applications, 24 Italian Songs and Arias is a recital, an opera, a gathering for (and by) those whose best isn’t always enough.
(Beloved) performance artist Brian Lobel failed to get into the New York State Choir. (Acclaimed) Soprano Gweneth-Ann Rand (4.48 Psychosis, Royal Opera House; Aida, English National Opera) failed to win at Cardiff Singer of the World. These two magnificent failures have joined forces to create a show about trying your best, aiming to please and how we ever know if we are ‘good enough’.
There’s no dress code…but you won’t be turned away for donning a top hat or silky gloves, should the mood strike you.
Cast: Brian Lobel, Gweneth-Ann Rand, Allyson Devenish and Naomi Felix
