Set in a garden with a bench, a Representative, the eternal messenger of fate, brings to each of three young women her dearest wish: One would like to be wealthy; one would like to be famous; and one would like to have a lover in her life. Each discovers she has not asked for enough: the rich woman misses real friends; the famous author yearns for love; and the third young woman finds marriage a tedious chore. Even the Representative is dissatisfied with his life: He needs an assistant to help him with his tough job. The moral of this comic opera: We all want too much or too little.
Game of Chance premiered in January, 1957 at the Augustana College Opera Workshop, in Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois.
