Gipsy Love

1978  

GIPSY LOVE

An Operetta by Franz Lehár 
Adapted and Arranged by Ronald Hanmer 
Book and Lyrics by Phil Park   

 The Story 

Franck Lehar, the natural successor to the immortal Strausses, had his greatest triumphs in operetta and two of these operettas played by the Southern Light in the past come readily to mind, the incomparable " Merry Widow" and "Land of Smiles".  In these shows Lehar's entrancing music provided a trump card and this is again exemplified in another of his works, "Gipsy Love", although it is perhaps not so well known as the two already mentioned.

 

The score is full of sparkling melodies - tuneful waltzes alternating with stirring marches - with the vibrant gipsy music - sure to take a trick.  The clever comedy and the the delightful dancing adds two more aces to the hand to ensure that "Gipsy Love" is another grand slam for Southern Light.
