Event description
Join the members of the NI Opera Studio as they perform Irish-American composer Victor Herbert's glorious 1911 operetta, 'The Enchantress'.

About this Event

A corrupt state, a spoiled prince, a woman of the stage:

Things are about to change in aristocratic Europe, when a womanising crown prince catches the eye of celebrated singer Vivien, whose independence threatens to upset the stately decorum. Written by Irish-American composer Victor Herbert and two of his regular collaborators at a time when the suffrage movement was gaining strength in North America, this operetta has not lost its bite when commenting on inherited power and female ambition, while reveling in the nostalgia of old-world charm.

Enjoy luxurious waltzes and witty repartee in this rediscovery by one of the greatest figures of the American musical stage.

” You think me fickle then?”

“I think you – a man.”

The Enchantress: An American operetta (1911), by Victor Herbert

Book and Lyrics by Harry B. Smith and Frédérique “Fred” De Gresac

Book adapted for Northern Ireland Opera by Judith Wiemers

Features “I want to be a prima donna” (Art is calling for me)
