The Fresh Squeezed Opera Company is delighted to perform Baby Shower for its summer 2015 production, an opera by Bruce Trinkley and Jason Charnesky. A window into the comedy and drama of bringing a baby into the world, Baby Shower has something for everyone!

The opera, directed by Maggie Rascoe '10 and produced by Jillian Flexner '11, offers a unique experience of a 10-person all female cast, ranging from contralto to coloratura. FSO alum, Victoria Benson will lead the ensemble as the overwhelmed hostess, Tracey.

"Baby Shower depicts a contemporary American celebration with some very recognizable family members and friends, all of whome have a back story that is revealed during the lead-up to the arrival of guests, in the interchange between the participants and in the aftermath of the out-of-control proceedings. But what can be mended among family and friends is achieved by the inspiring lyrical ending to this comic romp through the incivilities in human relationships." -Bruce Trinkley, composer
