La Périchole, Jacques Offenbach's opera buffa, comes to Montgomery Theater. The opera equivalent of musical-theater comedy, this fully staged three-act opera concerns two impoverished Peruvian street-singers, too poor to afford a marriage license, and a lecherous viceroy, who wishes to make the female street singer, named La Périchole, his mistress. Set in 1950s Lima, with music that's diverse and delightful, the opera is performed in English with supertitles. It contains some of Offenbach's most charming music, filled with boleros, seguidillas and galops. Learn More

The lovely bride of the King of Baratiria comes to Venice to meet the man she was pledged to in childhood. She learns her young prince was mixed up with a gondolier's son, so they must rule together until it is proven which is king! This delightful mix-up of Spanish royalty and Venetian gondolieri and contradine is filled with some of the most tuneful and dancable music in the gilbert and Sullivan canon. How will they resolve this complicated situation?
