Fully-staged opera in English, presented together with "The Telephone." In The Medium, Baba, as "Madame Flora," conducts bogus séances with her daughter Monica and a gypsy deaf-mute named Toby to extract money from bereaved parents. At a séance, she feels a pair of hands on her throat and panics. Has the spirit world come to punish her, or was it merely Toby, whom she treats abusively? Unable to get an answer to this question, she retreats to the bottle. But, what will happen next?
Performed together with 'The Telephone' - a double feature of tragedy plus comedy in these 20th century American opera favorites - by Gian Carlo Menotti.
