Georges Bizet’s romantic, one-act operetta about love and omelets was composed for a music competition when the composer (world-renowned for his operas Carmen and The Pearl Fishers) was just eighteen years old.
A youthful vitality permeates this story set in 19th century Padua, Italy, in the home of the Mayor, his wife Veronica, and his love-struck daughter, Laurette.”
She’s enamored of the ever-resourceful Silvio, an army captain, who dons one disguise after another to infiltrate the household, in order to win the hand of the girl he adores. Sound simple? Guess again! The classic storybook set and costumes were designed by Production Designer Tommy Bourgeois. This TDO production will be revived under the direction of SMU’s Hank Hammett and Dallas Opera’s Education Music Director and Pianist Mary Dibbern.
