Notes & Reviews:

America’s premiere opera composer here presents his first full-length comic opera, based on the classic farce "A Flea in Her Ear" by Feydeau. But here, the composer, working from his own libretto, has set the work on a ranch in Texas in the 1940s. The original source’s hilarious story of supposed infidelities and the characters’ outlandish attempts at getting even without finding out the truth of the matter translates wonderfully to the new setting and, indeed, at the first Lexington performances both critics and audiences were delighted by the new work. This represents the latest in an ongoing project with Albany and Pasatieri to record his major stage works (the most recent being the acclaimed "Frau Margot").
