Set in New Orleans, Amy Beach's only opera recounts the legend of a French noblewoman who gives a bracelet to a pirate as a proclamation of her love. When she disappears mysteriously at sea, he is accused of her murder, imprisoned and then released in time to defend the city in the War of 1812.
In a parody of the 1950's soap opera, craziness revolves around a semi-conscious patient, his fiance the anesthetist, and a lecherous doctor.
These productions feature artists of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Training Program and is performed in English at Williams Stables Theater in Central City.
