War rages on 'twixt two Czech villages, and everybody who's anybody seems to be caught on the bridge 'tween the two.  There's time for shared secrets, a fleeting flirtation, romantic upheaval - and a mystery - before a cease-fire rights the errors aplenty in this one-act opera by Bohuslav Marinu.

Vittorio Giannini's Beauty and the Beast, originally commissioned by CBS for the radio, is a beautifully rendered fairytale that invites us to find beauty in the most unlikely of places. Vittorio Giannini's rich, romantic score is the perfect setting for this unconventional love story.
