The composer wrote the libretto based on the Georges Feydeau's farce A Flea in Her Ear, but changing the setting to Texas in the 1940s necessitated extensively reimagining the plot details and dialogue. This is Pasatieri's 19th opera; it is written in his typical lyrical style and is well suited to student singers for whom it's targeted. The recording is based on performances at the University of Kentucky. The student performers do an excellent job at creating vivid characterizations, and the singing is of ...

The recording is based on performances at the University of Kentucky. The student performers do an excellent job at creating vivid characterizations, and the singing is of a high standard. In fact, it would be difficult to tell, based on the quality of the performances, that these are not professionals.

The opera's scope and demands should make it attractive to university opera departments looking for works tailored for young singers.
