Burnt Toast

BURNT TOAST is comprised of a series of eight comedic mini-operas, each depicting a different stage of a romantic relationship set in contemporary settings. With original music and libretti, each vignette is a self-contained story, but together they work as a cohesive single piece. The relationships are of all types: the passionate, the fantasized, the bored and of course, the dead relationship.

An opera program that actually appeals to a wide general audience, BURNT TOAST is the brainchild of the same team that created 'Toothpaste', the five-minute domestic opera that has been screened throughout the world and showered with international prizes.
