Having Guests for Dinner is a micro-opera for the Internet with music by Nicholas Bentz and libretto by Robert Feng. It follows a young couple, Marcus and Laura, who are invited to a friend of a friend’s house for dinner. When they arrive, they meet their odd host, Christoph. Something seems off – their friends Scott and Andrew never arrive, and Christoph’s demeanor betrays that perhaps there’s more on the menu than just beef and lamb...

There were, however, noteworthy solos, including the flute solo for the circle dance in “Carmina,” which sounded like Susan McGinn. Read More >>
