Want to Know More About Lend Me a Tenor?


What Is the Story of Lend Me a Tenor?
World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli has signed on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out after mixing wine with a huge dose of tranquilizers. Believing that the divo is dead, the excitable opera manager taps his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up as the Moor and replace Merelli. Meanwhile, the tenor’s jealous wife, his ambitious female co-star, Max’s young girlfriend and the flirtatious head of the opera guild are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the star’s attention.


What Is Lend Me a Tenor Like?
The play is a classic farce that wins big laughs from mistaken identity, mixed signals and misunderstandings. Set in a hotel suite with six doors that get slammed frequently as the play’s eight characters rush to chase or hide from one another, the action builds to a frenzy once Max decides to pretend to be Merelli. Act Two is filled with comedic surprises, especially after the real Tito resurfaces.

Is Lend Me a Tenor Good for Kids?
The play has some suggestive elements (two female characters end up in undergarments during a comic seduction scene), but overall, the play is harmless fun. If your teen has a taste for slapstick comedy, Lend Me a Tenor may be just the ticket for a multi-generational family outing.
