Violetta is Paris’ most desirable courtesan. She is sought after by society’s most important men. Wealthy in her own right, she is perfectly content with her hedonistic, carefree existence - until she meets Alfredo Germont.
by Charles Gounod
Faust, an elderly scholar sells his soul to the devil Méphistophélès for a chance to seduce the innocent and beautiful Marguerite. Faust’s diabolical struggle between good and evil must surely end in tragedy… Or does it?
The Merry Widow
by Franz Lehar
The Merry Widow is an effervescent operetta, which tells the story of a rich widow and her countrymen’s attempts to keep her fortune in the national bank by marrying her to Count Danilo Danilovitsch. A cascade of elegant ladies, eligible bachelors, can-can dancers and ever-flowing champagne enhances the twists and turns of their love story!
The Chocolate Soldier
Oscar Straus’s charming 1908 chamber opera is a comic take on an unusual boy-meets-girl scenario. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Arms and the Man, it is a fusion of Viennese operetta and British wit.
When Lieutenant Bumerli, a Swiss mercenary assisting the Serbian army in the Serbo-Bulgarian War, spontaneously takes refuge in the household of a Bulgarian general, he sets the hearts of all the women aflutter. But when he is recognized as a deserter, he ruins the general’s daughter Nadina’s upcoming wedding to a soldier. As it turns out, this is just as well—Bumerli and Nadina were destined for each other.
