Aged eighteen, Georges Bizet won a competition organised by Offenbach to write an operetta. It was to be based on a libretto which was a French adaptation of Sheridan’s St Patrick’s Day. The result was Le Docteur Miracle.
This charming, lively piece contains echoes of Rossini and gives us a foretaste of Bizet’s most famous opera Carmen, extracts of which will be served up as a delicious musical dessert, perfectly complimenting the French bistro feel.
A rare chance to see this gem! Comedy, tunes and madcap laughs galore. There’s even a quartet about an omelette…
