All Scene are pleased to be diving into the Opera industry again and what a show - Vert Vert at Garsington Opera season
How could anyone resist an opera that opens with a tragicomic funeral for a deceased parrot held by the pupils of a girls’ convent school? The girls – this is a French convent so they know a thing or two – decide that their beloved pet must be replaced in some form and select the hopelessly innocent young man Valentin to be the happy recipient of all the doting attention they used to lavish on the parrot.
In the experienced hands of director Martin Duncan (Il Turco in Italia, Garsington Opera 2011), we present a new translation of this enchanting work by conductor David Parry. Full of intoxicating melody and sparkling wit, this continuation of our Offenbach thread is the “Mozart of the Champs-Élysées” at his most charming.
