Another opera in SummerFest, “A Little Nightmare Music,” is a one-act opera of Mozart gone wrong. It was directed by Dennis Robinson Jr. who also directed the Night Caps shows. He has been with the company for six years.

“A Little Nightmare Music is a hoot!” Robinson said. “I hope people will come enjoy 4 amazing artists having fun on stage alongside the wonderful Freya String Quartet. Come and enjoy 20 minutes of laughter, fun, drinks, and great music.”

Music Maestro Dwayne Fulton was back again this season with his popular Gospel Suite.

“Several local African-American Pittsburgers performed with the Gospel Suite,” said Antonio Watts, a Missouri native who performed in several of SummerFest’s productions including “The Chinese Suite,” and “The Gospel Suite.” There is plenty in which to become invested in even if one person is considering only skin color to determine interest. Every single person here is adequately qualified for what is developing here and it is a great advantage that Opera Theater Pittsburgh is available to this community.”
