Marriage by Lantern-Light
Join us as The Cleveland Opera visits Clague Playhouse on Sunday, April 15 at 4 p.m. and presents Marriage by Lantern-Light, a comic opérette in one act by Jacques Offenbach. This adventurous and comic production will be sung in English and feature four new voices – Elizabeth Frey, Brian Skoog, Danielle Bendjy and Caroline Bergan.
Free and open to the public.
The story tells the tale of a young farmer, Guillot, who has been entrusted to look after an orphan cousin, Denise, by his uncle. He treats her off-handedly to hide his feelings for her. Both write to the uncle, she in misery, he asking for money.
Two widows poke fun at Guillot, but when he receives a reply from his uncle telling him about treasure that can be found under a great tree when the bells of the church peal for the evening Angélus, they fight with each other to gain his affection.
Evening comes and Guillot – with ‘accomplices!’ – enters with lantern and spade to find the treasure – which surprises everyone!
