This winter term, Oberlin Opera Theater presented two modern operas at the ’Sco: Strawberry Fields and The Telephone. In Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Telephone (seen here), a man tries to propose to his girlfriend before he leaves on a trip. His girlfriend, however, is too occupied with interminable telephone conversations to notice.
