BURNT TOAST (DVD)


burnt-toast-dvd-web.gif (13399 bytes)Shannon joins a cast of many of Canada’s brightest comedic and dramatic stars and the voices of some of its most famed opera stars in Burnt Toast, hour-long television opera, comprised of a series of eight comic operas each depicting a different stage of romantic love. An irreverent and hilarious spin on opera, domestic drama and the hallowed institutions of love and marriage, the relationships in Burnt Toast run the gamut: from the passionate to the fantastized, the bored and of course, the dead relationship, each as recognizable as the last.
With original music by Canadian composer Alexina Louie and lyrics by comedian, Dan Redican, Burnt Toast is directed by Larry Weinstein.
