OPÉRA-BOUFFE IN DREI AKTEN UND VIER BILDERN

Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy

The viceroy of Peru has his corrupt ministers bring him lovers from the female population. This time his head of government has noticed the destitute street singer Périchole who, promised the prospect of eating her fill at long last, leaves the man she loves, Piquillo. But to qualify as a proper mistress she must be married. To this end, the court lackeys drag in none other than Piquillo, who has been persuaded to play along by alcohol and the requisite cash. But can money along bring happiness? In La Périchole, a masterpiece by Jacques Offenbach and, at long last, an operetta, again featured on the programme of the former operetta venue Theater an der Wien. Nikolaus Habjan, who has long been an audience favourite as a director and puppeteer and is also a sharp observer of political developments, breathes new life into this opéra-bouffe with opera singers who act, actors who sing and puppets that dance.
