Description: A comedy, this opera is about the opera and the mob, divas and gangsters, love and pastry, and a requiem for a dead cat. The FBI and IRS have cracked down on Imbroglio's front organization — the non-existent Staten Island Grand Opera — and if he doesn't produce an opera quickly, his entire family will go to jail! After an evening of gun and word play, poisoned cannoli, whacked cats, and slamming doors, the family produces an opera.
