A08. Turandot. At the opera, the beautiful upper class single girl is forced to join her parents in the most boring opera (signaled by the dragging voice and mimic of the singer).

A09. At the station the upper class girl spots the jolly bachelor. It's a little confusing, who flirts with whom. But she signals "give me love, give me life, give me freedom", as she is fed up with her upper class boring life with her parents. Towards the end he says "love is a blind thing for me" while waving goodbye to the ex-girlfriend, who vanishes in a ghosty style, and he runs to join this new lovely girl.

ACT 2


THE WEDDING





B01. Grand wedding is being staged.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B02. The Wedding March. The music is pretentious. This scene takes 8 minutes. The priest does a small ceremony. The couple is very happy. And here comes the trick - they MUST BE facing the audience. They are leaving the stage via the audience, and the wedding dress MUST BE enormous in size dragged out from the back-stage curtain. Upset and confuse the audience about the dress, as it may be pulled over the heads of people. Within the 8 minutes you move back to stage. Champagne and drinking has begun. A wedding cake is on a table with candles. The ex-girlfriend could have sneaked in as a brides maid.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B03. Wedding Waltz. He is a bit shabby and out of step. Audience should be encouraged to clap their hands, perhaps join on stage, if the audience has a bride-to-be (a wedding shower in the audience).


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B04. The darn ghost is about to arrive, and whisper lies or gossip into the ears of the guests. The upper class guests are surprised, yet noble to begin with. But panic is spreading.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B05. The ex-girlfriend (who have sneaked in as a brides maid) is pulling her revenge, telling about his past as a casanova, when she managed to catch him red handed. The upper class acts terrified of the whole situation. But some are beginning to recall their own past with lovers, and some still have bad things to hide.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B06. Her father is furious. "Why did you pick such a shabby boy with no style or grace?" We could have found a respectable young man to join us at fancy dinners and opera. Pumpkin heads with shaped faces roll all over the stage - a reference to Turandot. Disaster.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B07. Smutsteiner Spank. Now the furious ex-girlfriend turns toward the bride. "I know secrets about YOU!" Only your own imagination can set the limit. Bride is in chock - a chock that someone found out - and a chock that her parents have to experience this.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B08. The candle tip over, and a fire starts. The outrageous fire-brigade comes rushing from here and there. Towards the end, the newly wed couple turn their back to the disasters.

B09. The couple joins in a heartbreaking love song, "Morninglight". Preferably a duet.


Demo music for rehearsals. Please engage your own ensembles fit for your theater.





B10. Applause. After applause use this lively "Broken heart song" or "La Cha Cha Cha" as audience leave. Be sure every bride-to-be receives a medal for their courage having watched the whole performance.
