Service Provider is a one-act comic opera by Christopher Weiss and John de los Santos that details the erosion of modern romance by our obsession with mobile technology. When a loving couple goes out for their anniversary dinner at an elegant restaurant, the evening descends into farcical disaster as their incessant cell phone usage ultimately unmasks the fractured reality of their marriage.
Service Provider was commissioned by Washington National Opera in 2015 and was hailed as a “crowd pleaser” (Washington Post) following its Kennedy Center premiere.
Presented by the Lake George Music Festival and the Seagle Music Colony.
