With UNC undergrad singers, UNC Opera presents a pair of lighthearted mini-operas. In Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Telephone, Ben keeps trying to propose to Lucy, only to be thwarted by her phone conversations. At twenty-five minutes, it’s more short story than novel. And Pauline Viardot’s Cendrillon, premiered in 1904 when Viardot was eighty-three, is a fairly silly retelling of Cinderella with a few key changes. Written for piano and singers, it feels perfect for a Parisian salon. —Dan Ruccia
