HIGH FIDELITY – AN OPERETTA FARCE is a Chicago Premiere that is brought to life by ColorBox Theatre working closely with the composer and librettists.

This charming farcical operetta, which is based on Anton Chekov’s “The Boor” and George Bernard Shaw’s “How he lied to her Husband,” is set in Chicago in the 1900’s. Aurora has been mourning the loss of her husband (whom she really didn’t love) for one year and her energetic cousin, Georgina, shows her that Spring has arrived and it’s time to start living again. Two unexpected men come knocking on Aurora’s door to collect a debt her late husband left – but Aurora will not pay the debt. An argument develops between Ted (who is owed the debt) and Aurora – which culminate to a gun dual. While Aurora and Ted plan each other’s demise, Georgina falls head-over-heals in love for Ted’s ward: Henry. However, Henry seems to be infatuated with Aurora and attempts to persuade Ted to rescind his gun dual with Aurora. It’s a tangled web of high society tempers, love and farce – mapped out carefully in this delightful two-act, fast paced operetta.
