Victorian Lyric Opera Company presents "The New Moon"

Friday, February 24, 2023

6 Performances | February 24 & 25 and March 3 & 4 at 8:00pm | February 26 and March 5 at 2:00pm

Revolution, romance, mutiny, and betrayal are woven throughout this classic 1928 operetta set in 18th-century New Orleans.

Robert, a French aristocrat and revolutionary flees France and settles in New Orleans by selling himself into servitude to a wealthy landowner. He falls in love with the owner's beautiful daughter, Marianne, but due to his circumstances cannot tell her who he really is.

Hunted by a French detective, Robert is eventually captured and put aboard a ship, The New Moon, to be returned to France. Things take a turn however when a mutiny occurs onboard and the ship's entire party, including Robert and Marianne, are made to start life anew on a remote island.

Featuring beloved songs like Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise, and Lover, Come Back to Me.
