Michael is pleased to annouce that he has been cast in New York City Opera's VOX 2011 selection of Vinkensport or, The Finch Opera as Hans Sachs' Trainer, a coked-up piece of Eurotrash who cheats by injecting his finch with testosterone! In Vinkensport or, The Finch Opera, a motley assortment of contestants participate in their annual finch-sitting competition, an obscure Belgian folk competition that pits chaffinches (and their owners) against each other in a battle to see who has the most melodious bird. The contest is run as such: a man waves a flag and each of the competitors sits in front of a box containing one of their fellow contestants' birds. Every time a bird makes a proper call (a susk-e-wiet, as it's called in these circles) they receive a tally mark. The bird with the most points wins, bringing much pride to its trainer! Although a seemingly simple and gentle competition, access to the competitor's inner monologues and flashbacks to their preparations reveal deception, deep-seated rivalries, painful loneliness, and blossoming romance.
