NAUGHTY MARIETTA — AN ICON OF AMERICAN OPERETTA!
Set in New Orleans in the 1780s, a runaway Contessa impersonates a Casket Girl, then a Puppeteer Boy, until her “Italian Street Song” and a royal French reward for her return undoes Marietta’s playful masquerade. The local Lothario, a notorious Sea Pirate incognito, plotting a Coup d’ Etat, schemes to have her hand in marriage. An earnest American Ranger wins Marietta’s heart by completing her dreamy song “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life,” and saves the day as he permits The Pirate to sail away for the good of all.
This celebrated favorite features the Irish born American composer Victor Herbert's most cherished songs— such as “It Never, Never Can Be Love,” “Neath The Southern Moon,” “Live For Today,” and “I’m Falling In Love With Someone,” among 19 musical numbers in two acts by a cast of 12 members from VHRP LIVE's New York City based professional company with live musical accompaniment.
