A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, Lend Me a Tenor is a crowd pleaser that has had audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter and on their feet with standing ovations at every performance.

The play takes place on the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. The world famous tenor Tito Morelli, “Il Stupendo,” is set to perform Otello, his greatest role, at the gala season opener. Saunders, the General Manager, hopes this will put Cleveland on the operatic map. Through a hilarious series of mishaps Morelli is given a double dose of tranquilizers which mix with the booze he has consumed and he passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he is dead. Max is an aspiring singer and Saunders persuades him to get into Morelli’s Otello costume and try to fool the audience into thinking he’s the operatic superstar. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo!
