The Victor Herbert Renaissance Project LIVE! presents:

The Debutante

November 19th & 20th, 2019 8PM

1914, musical comedy
Music by Victor Herbert
Libretto by Harry B. Smith
Lyrics by Robert B. Smith

Ah, Love in Paris! Being engaged at birth proves awkward for Elaine and Philip when they come of age with other exotic ideas. There’s a romantically-inclined French Marquis for her, a Russian Opera Diva for him. Mix in an opera composer avoiding his suffragette wife, and the same Russian Opera Diva enticing “dear old dad.”  Mistaken identity abounds as the whole lot descends upon Paris. Of course, true love triumphs in the end.  Hear again “The Face Behind the Mask,” “Call Around Again,” “The Love of the Lorelei,” “All for the Sake of A Girl” and “Never Mention Love When We’re Alone.”

Featuring Claire Leyden, in her third season with the company, as Elaine.
