Service Provider, composed by Christopher Weiss
World Premiere: Washington National Opera, 2015
Service Provider details the erosion of modern romance by our obsession with mobile technology. When a loving couple goes out for their anniversary dinner at an elegant restaurant, the evening descends into farcical disaster as the incessant cell phone usage ultimately unmasks the fractured reality of their marriage. The twenty minute opera is scored for soprano, mezzo, tenor and baritone, accompanied by twelve instruments. (clink here for more accolades of Service Provider)
