1st Night | 2013
Adam is a rich industrialist, who aspires to a more cultured world. Spurred on by playful jibes that he is little more than a city suit living the capitalist's dream, this frustrated amateur singer decides to mount an opera in his lavish country retreat. Once his friends see him belting out the notes, he feels sure it will end their shallow taunts. In fact, it might even help him win the hand of Celia, the female conductor he has been pursuing whom - it just so happens - is the first to be recruited for his showpiece.
