Music by Jacques Offenbach, Libretto by Armand Lapointe
Celebrate the joy of the holiday season with Mason Opera and its exciting December production of Mesdames de la Halle, a comic one-act opérette bouffe by Jacques Offenbach, with libretto by Armand Lapointe. First performed in Paris in 1859, this charming comedy revolves around the competitive street vendors of a famous Parisian fruit and vegetable market, “La Halle.” All the women vendors have fallen head over heels in love with the handsome, young, kitchen boy, Croûte-au-pot, and they compete for his attention. Croûte-au-pot however loves the beautiful fruit vendor, Ciboulette. After a comedy of errors and misplaced identity, true love triumphs! Performed in English, this delightful opera is full of the beautiful music and comedic genius of Offenbach, and will bring laughter and joy to patrons of all ages!
$15 adults, $10 seniors, $5 youth through grade 12.
