Two lovely young women are held hostage on the Orient Express and endure both the advances of their captors and an elaborate rescue by their fianc├ęs that goes off the rails. Tamara Wilson and Tucker Foundation Award winner Paul Groves join with Andrea Silvestrelli ("there were wild cheers for Silvestrelli" - Chicago Sun Times) and Houston Grand Opera Studio alumni Heidi Stober ("confidence, panache and thrilling technique" - Houston Chronicle) and Nicholas Phan ("a honeyed tenor [with] beautiful phrasing" - Washington Post); William Lacey conducts.
