One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century - as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife Maria from causing runaway chaos. It’s an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.
Ken Ludwig’s hilarious sequel to Lend Me a Tenor!
Roles: 4 men, 3 women
|| male, 50s-60s. High-strung American producer; he's had success but worked very hard for it and it shows.
||male, 30s-40s. Rising American opera singer and former assistant to Saunders; smart, level-headed, and quick with a joke; should also sing well.
||female, early 50s, Italian. Stunning wife to one of Italy's most famous opera singers; big personality, explosive temper. Italian accent.
||male, 50s, Italian. Tito is one of Italy's most famous opera singers; regal in appearance, fiery in nature; has a bit of a diva complex and is a horribly jealous person. Italian accent. The same actor plays Beppo, a bellhop - joyous and full of life, as down to earth as Tito is regal. Strong tenor.
||female, 20s, Italian-American. Bright-eyed star hoping to be discovered; she is the daughter of Tito and Maria and, while they still think of her as their little girl, she is definitely coming into her own. American accent.
||male, 20s, Italian. Dashing, young opera impresario who is in love with Mimi but seen as a threat to her father's career; speaks English very well. No detectable Italian accent and must be a strong tenor.
||female, late 40s-50s, Russian. Famous Russian opera singer, former lover to Tito, a very intense and passionate woman. Russian accent; must also sing well.
