Opera lovers in search of something new and different should definitely check out the rest of the Urban Arias performances which run through April 22nd. Only in their second season, they have shown a knack for casting need-to-know singers in works by living composers and librettists. D.C. audiences should feel proud to have yet another company that provides engaging performances in a great venue.

Director Alan Paul filled out this monodrama-in-music, creating a world and stage business for the character of Charlotte, which gave the work full dimensionality.
