Light Opera of New York presents Victor Herbertís Orange Blossoms, April 25 & 26

 

Light Opera of New York, affectionately known as LOONY, was founded in 2006 as a professional, not-for-profit company devoted to the performance of staged operettas and operetta concerts.  LOONY is now entering its eighth season of presenting classic operetta from a 21st-century perspective.

 

 

 

New York, New York (April 10, 2014) - Light Opera of New York presents Victor Herbertís rarely performed gem Orange Blossoms on April 25 & 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia, Peter Norton Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at 95th Street, NY.

 

See what shocked and titillated Broadway on opening night in 1922. So many independent women, trust-fund babies and gay divorcees abound that it may feel more like Cole Porter than the sweeping romantic style customary of the most popular American composer of his day. Not to worry, Orange Blossoms has that quintessential Victor Herbert love song A Kiss in the Dark, and the witty Way Out West in Jersey, as well as the scandalous Let's Not Get Married! This is the first chance to see Orange Blossoms in NY since that first naughty run on Broadway.
