Offenbach’s Songbird is a reduced version of French operetta La Périchole. The scene is 1920’s New Orleans, and musicians Songbird and Piquillo have fallen on hard times and are desperate for a better life.
A tale of true love, capers, villains and confusion. Despite a series of dizzying events, they prove love conquers all. Don’t bet against Songbird!
Performed in French with English subtitles
Pre-Opera Talk: February 16 at 6:30pm and February 18 at 1:30pm Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall (MPAC)
