Born on the Paris boulevards in the middle of the 19th century, the operetta assumed the role of exposing the vices of French society. And not only modern. Even the heroes of ancient myths, who for centuries preserved their inviolability, were ridiculed. The operetta "Orpheus in Hell" appeared on the stage in 1858 shocked the noble audience, provoked a flurry of criticism and ... made its author - Jacques Offenbach - incredibly popular among the people.
Moving to Austria-Hungary, the operetta lost its sarcasm and topical political satire, its heroes became more romantic, the stories spun around love intrigues and comical misunderstandings, and the Viennese waltz and the Hungarian czardas joined the cancan. From here the operetta went to the British Isles, and then to America, giving birth to a new genre - a musical.
Theater Novaya Opera offers a tour of the history of European operetta. Under the sounds of the cancan, waltz and czardas, the time machine of music will move you from the streets of Paris to the luxurious palaces of Vienna and to the banks of the Danube.
The program of the concert "Four Kings of the Operetta" included fragments of the most famous representatives of the genre: Jacques Offenbach, Johann Strauss, Imre Kalman and Franz Lehar.
