A PERFECT PLAN

Perfect Plan -- Delightful comic opera by Seymour Barab at Symphony Space.

Encompass New Opera Theatre teamed up with the After Dinner Opera Company to pay tribute to one of America’s most prolific and popular musical personalities, composer Seymour Barab. A Perfect Plan is a crisscrossing, hop-scotching romp of a comic opera leading its seven characters into a labyrinth of hilarious entanglements, spinning out a madcap tale of gold digging, falsified identities, and all’s-well-that-ends-well love affairs.

“The Period music was… a delight, and the splendid cast and Nancy Rhodes’ direction made ‘A Perfect Plan’ great fun to see and hear…the precise orchestra was conducted with spirit by John Yaffe.” - Bill Zakariasen, The Westsider

“Brilliant … the cast was lively and accomplished.”- Shirley Fleming, Musical America
