The story follows a lost Montagnana viola, from its discovery on a park bench by a junk dealer, to the hands of a murderess, to the owner of a sandwich shop, and finally to an instrument appraiser, who recognizes its worth. It's actually based on a true story! Check out this link: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1998-06-22/news/9806220059_1_viola-violin-expert-chicago-symphony-orchestra
So, LOON needed a piano, and Duluth Fine Pianos was able to provide! The piano part was beautifully played by Jeannie Doty. I had to smile to myself, witnessing a blend of opera and piano store and stories. That little rental piano is now developing its own history and story. Maybe someone will write an opera about it someday, too.
