A case of mistaken identity leads to over-the-top antics in Ken Ludwig’s sidesplitting farce Lend Me a Tenor, staged by QNEK Productions. When a series of mishaps leads to world-famous singer Tito Merelli receiving a double dose of tranquilizer, an opera company assistant dons the crooner’s costume and passes himself off as the music man. Merelli emerges from his tranquilizer haze and, naturally, high jinks ensue. Under direction from Jenny Dunne, a cast of local talent opens the award-winning theater company’s 25th and final season with this madcap comedy that is sure to have audience members singing its praises.

Notes carry across the Mead Memorial Chapel lawn during Saturday’s carillon recital by George Matthew Jr. That evening, festival co-organizer Jeffrey Buettner conducts the Bach Festival Orchestra and the Middlebury College Choir in George Frideric Handel’s oratorio Esther.
