An Opera by Gaetano Donizetti
Directed by Dodie Rife
April 15, 17*, 22, 24*, in the Roebling Theatre
or The Beaten Husband, is a delightful dose of Donizetti in a
one-act comic opera with high octane musical numbers connected
by bits of snappy dialogue on the “politically incorrect” side.
Michelle Berger was born and raised in Montana. She had an
extensive career in Europe and the United States. While she is
primarily known as a classical singer, Michelle has always
enjoyed and performed other genres of music as well.
Michelle started delving into the world of musical theater while
in high school and continued her love of musical theater through
her college years and beyond.
After moving to Europe,
where she lived for many years, Michelle was active in
performing both classical music and Broadway shows. In
Switzerland she toured a series of Gershwin Evenings and
performed in Broadway musicals, as well as opera.
Michelle has sung The Witch in Sondheim’s “Into The Woods”, Liz
in Russ and Haverty’s “Inside Out”, Ado Annie in Rogers and
Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma”, Fastrada in Schwartz’s “Pippin”,
Buttercup in Gilbert and Sullivan’s “HMS Pinafore”, Katisha in
Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado”, The Fairy Queen in Gilbert
and Sullivan’s “Iolanthe”, as well as many others.
asked to come up with a title for this show, “The Other Side”
seemed to be a perfect choice.
