PONY Mobile: The American Family at Dinner, July 2011

An Evening of Staged Arias

A nostalgic view of the rise and fall of the nuclear family. A cocktail of Madoff and Mailer, Washington and Weiner, Clinton and Clinton. The perfect family in the perfect scandal.

Music by a celebrated roster of internationally renowned composers: Beethoven, Bernstein, Bizet, Dvorak, Donizetti, Mascagni, Massenet, Menotti, Mozart, and Verdi.
