Proving that not all operas are based on dusty German legends, Greek myths or Shakespeare, The Computer Kid's Magic Night finds its inspiration in an early case of screen addiction. Written in 1986, this one-hour comic opera centers on Mickey, who neglects studies, friends, piano and the great outdoors to play computer games. One night, he accidentally types magic words into the computer and several characters jump into his world. With a bit of magic and a lot of music, these characters urge Mickey to spend his time more wisely ... but will he listen? Upon the opera's debut, The Press Democrat praised Joann E. Feldman's work as a "legitimate opera, carefully and painstakingly built from a strong musical foundation." Now, on its 30th anniversary, Solo Opera presents a wildly entertaining new production directed and produced by Sylvia Amorino.
