Additional Info

Enrico, a successful business man, is haunted by the fact that he never pursued a singing career. His world is turned upside down when his young son and his daughter rebel, and refuse to continue to pursue an operatic career. Everyone is made miserable until it is revealed that the son of his best friend, who is going to marry his daughter, has just received a contract to sing at the Metropolitan Opera House. But at the final curtain we see that poor, Enrico, still regrets not having had a singing career. This is a hilarious comedy with all the poignant bickering and frustration of close knit families. The charcters are colorful and Enrico is an outrageous character, straight out of Moliere.
