Opera preview lecture 45 minutes
before curtain

A phantasmagorical mixture of steampunk, the supernatural and romantic decadence woven together into 3 different stories. Hear a singing robot, see a Satanic musician who drives a girl to sing herself to death, and glide in a gondola to wicked Venice where you can lose your very soul. Offenbach’s gift for melody is nowhere more evident than in this grand work that includes his famous Barcarolle.

Sung in the original French with English surtitles
