Jacques Offenbach was known to be as eccentric as the characters in his operas and operettas – from singing robot dolls to Greek gods dancing the very first can-can on their way to hell! What a guy!
Add in some Gilbert and Sullivan, Lehar, Johann Strauss and others, and we promise an evening of 19th century lilting, absurdist fun!
Carl Maria von Weber’s romantic era opera based on a folktale is full of allegory, magic, good, evil, love, and death. Something for everyone! Fully staged, sung in German with English dialogue and supertitles with piano accompaniment.
