In an era when celebrities find fame despite possessing no discernable talent, the Skylight Opera Theatre’s latest production rings particularly true. Souvenir follows the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy socialite who, despite her limited voice and considerable pitch problems, achieved her dream of becoming a famous soprano singer. She was so bad that she attained a sort of cult stardom, and her performances often sold-out, including her climactic 1944 Carnegie Hall farewell concert. Souvenirruns through March 30, with a 7:30 p.m. performance tonight.
