Reading Reflection “A Night At The Opera (Cantina)” “A Night At The Opera (Cantina)” production by Suzan Hanson tells story about a group of enthusiastic women to show moral support to the deployed Allied troops during World War II by set a party in deserted storeroom, somewhere in Europe. The soldiers who arrive are fewer than expected, yet it does not dishearten these women to go on with the party. The play introduces various angles from different characters and backgrounds.
