University of California, Santa Barbara Library and Opera Theatre present the North American premiere of Franz Lehár’s The Mock Marriage (Die Juxheirat), selected from the collection of the Michael and Nan Miller Operetta Archive.
The 1904 women’s suffrage operetta is set in Newport, Rhode Island and features beautiful melodies, sweeping orchestrations, grand costumes and comedic turns that will delight audiences young and old. Both performances at the Lobero Theatre (Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 8pm and Sunday, February 17, 2019 at 2pm) by the award-winning UCSB Opera Theatre students will be performed in English.
