One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1936 in Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century – As long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot blooded wife Maria from causing runaway chaos.It’s an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks and madcap delight.

We are in search of the following roles:

Saunders – Male. late 50’s, any ethnicity. High-strung, American Producer; he’s had success but worked very hard for it, and it shows.

Max – Male, 30’s-early 40’s any ethnicity. Rising American Opera singer and former assistant to Saunders, Max is smart, level headed and quick with a joke. Should have some musical/ singing background.

Tito/Beppo Male, 50’s, Italian. Tito is one of Italy’s most famous opera singers, regal in appearance, fiery in nature, has a bit of a diva complex, and is a horribly jealous person. Italian accent. The same actor will play Beppo. a bellhop. Joyous and full of life, as down to earth as Tito is regal. Musical background a plus.

Maria – Female, Early 50’s, Italian. Stunning wife to one of Italy’s most famous Opera Singers, Maria has a big personality and an explosive temper. Italian Accent.

Mimi – Female, 20’s Italian/American. Bright eyed star, hoping to be discovered, she is the daughter of Tito and Maria. And while they still think of her as their little girl, she is definitely coming into her own. American accent.

Carlo – Male, 20’s, Italian, Dashing young Opera impresario who is in love with Mimi, but seen as a threat to her father’s career. Speaks English very well. No detectable Italian accent. Strong musical background a plus.

Tatiana Racon – Female, 40-50. A  sexy Russian soprano who’s had a brief affair with Tito.
