NI Opera Studio presents ‘The Enchantress’ by Irish-American composer Victor Herbert. A corrupt state, a spoiled prince, a woman of the stage: things are about to change in aristocratic Europe, when a womanising crown prince catches the eye of celebrated singer Vivien, whose independence threatens to upset the stately decorum. Written at a time when the suffrage movement was gaining strength in North America, this operetta has not lost its bite when commenting on inherited power and female ambition, while reveling in the nostalgia of old-world charm.
Enjoy luxurious waltzes and witty repartee in this rediscovery by one of the greatest figures of the American musical stage.
