LA VIE PARISIENNE
Music by Jacques Offenbach, adaptation by Phil Park and Ronald Hanmer.
Professional Version: English by Geoffrey Dunn
Paris in the 1860s - and cosmopolitan gaiety has reached new heights of delightful frivolity. A divertingly-tangled tale of flirtatious masquerading and romantic intriguing, it concerns irresponsible men-about-town, fashionable demimondaines, aristocratic visitors in search of a good time, and a motley assortment of flamboyant characters. irrepressible, vivacious music and scenes of rapturous hilarity make this glittering vision of life in the 'Gay Paree' of the Second Empire a marvelously enjoyable show.
