Artistic Director Anne-Julia Audray


About Tenorrrissimo: This  moving musical-comedy features five rising opera singers, French diva Anne-Julia Audray, Metropolitan Opera coach Joan Dornemann, and no microphone.

Bringing opera and comedy together, Tenorrrissimo makes the beauty of classical and romantic vocal music accessible to all. With performances of extragravant virtuosity and arias full of passion, Tenorrrissimo brings to all audiences opera’s most beautiful and spectacular high notes.

Performing the most stratospheric solos, these five singers are inspired by the original 3 Tenors: Pavarotti, Domingo, and Carreras. Featuring the songs of Puccini, Verdi, Bizet, Donizetti, Offenbach, Saint Saens, Gounod, Mascagni and more.

Based on an original idea and script by Anne-Julia Audray.

THE PLOT: Inspiration strikes when the Artistic Director of Long Island’s Southold Opera House (the retired soprano assoluta Griselda Carrara de la Mancha-Tequilla) reads a 1996 New York Times article about the famous and worldwideban "The Three Tenors" . As a business savvy opera diva, she knows the only thing better than The Three Tenors could be The Five Tenors, in a show named “Tenorrrissimo!”

Griselda will assemble the greatest opera quintet ever heard, but first she needs to find her stars. She invites the small Long Island town of Southold to audition. The first aspiring divos don’t quite hit the notes. Yet the true talents are hiding right under Griselda’s nose. A new group is born.

She convinces her business associate, the French impresario Stephane de Fol-Amour to start organizing a worldwide tour for the supergroup.

Griselda is sure that Tenorrrissimo will smash the box office records and outsell the original Three Tenors. The first stop of Tenorrrissimo’s world tour is on the marina of the little port of Greenport, Long Island. Will they ever make it to the Metropolitan Opera?
