Westminster Opera Theatre will present an evening of operas by modern composers on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Robert L. Annis Playhouse on the campus of Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, N.J. The operas will be sung in English with English supertitles.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students and seniors and are available by phone at 609-921-2663 or online at

The evening celebrates the complexity of different types of relationships. The four short operas that will be performed are A Flourish of Green by Missy Mazzoli, Avow by Mark Adamo, Service Provider by Christopher Weiss and John de los Santos and Trouble in Tahiti by Leonard Bernstein. Inspired by Boccaccio's Decameron, A Flourish of Green follows lovers Lorenzo and Silvana. Lorenzo recounts the tale of his demise, monitoring Silvana from the beyond as she recalls the trauma of losing her true love. Avow sketches the emotions experienced on a wedding morning by an ambivalent bride, her avid mother, the haunted groom, the daft celebrant and the ghost of the groom's father. Service Provider is a modern-day farce complete with infidelity, bad cellphone etiquette and a witty waiter. Trouble in Tahiti follows a day in the life of a young suburban couple struggling through an unhappy marriage.

Return to Forbidden Planet - Kelsey Theatre

Friday April 26, 2019
8:00 PM

A spaceship with Captain Tempest at the helm makes an emergency landing on the uncharted planet of D’Illyria. The only residents are the mad scientist Dr. Prospero, his daughter, Miranda, and their retro robot, Ariel. They were banished into hyperspace when Miranda was just a baby, and she has known no other world than this one. This tale of unrequited love, a scary space monster, dialogue in iambic pentameter, and lots of fun songs all adds up to one groovy show! Loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest and the 1956 sci-fi film “Forbidden Planet,” the show parodies 1950s sci fi, while paying homage to Shakespeare and much-loved rock ’n roll classics such as “Great Balls of Fire,” “The Monster Mash” and “Good Vibrations,” among others.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $16 for students/children and may be purchased online at or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking next to the theater. For a complete listing of adult and children's events, visit the Kelsey website or call the box office for a brochure.
