Here is the cast of Opus, currently playing at the Ensemble theatre. It's the story of a world famous string quartet, who do their recording sessions in Europe and play shows for the President. It takes place during one highly charged week of their life, as they resolve issues with one of their members whose increasing fits of irrational and selfish behavior force the group to rebalance their roles or face breaking up.
Opus by Michael Hollinger runs approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission, so do your business beforehand. And it's captivating. I thought it was a fabulous play. Ensemble gets extra props for casting the part of Carl, the practical cello player with little patience for petty squabbles, with Santa Barbara actor, Brian Harwell (far left).
It opened on 3 Feb (during the SBIFF so I won't be surprised if you didn't see opening night, I sure didn't!) and runs until 27 February.
