‘Crisis’ is a comedy opera in which the main character – the renowned opera singer Barichello – finds himself in the middle of a personal crisis. In addition to losing his amazing voice, his family is also torn apart when he falls in love with a young pop musician, Madonna. Blinded by love, he ignores the warnings of oracle Orachello, and the crisis takes on ever greater proportions.

The performance consists of two acts with one intermission. Total length, including the intermission, approx. 2.5 hours.
