The Telephone is a comedic opera about a man's attempts to ask his girlfriend life's important question. He realizes his best
opportunity will be to call her on the telephone, since that is her favorite mode of communication.
A Question of Taste is about a character who wages his daughter's hand in marriage. She, however, is already in love with
another character. The outcome promises an interesting resolution.
