The Golden Age of Operetta

Friday October 18, 2019
2:00 PM until 3:15 PM


The Golden Age of Operetta celebrates the rich melodies, romance and  gaiety that preceded the onset of a distinctly American musical theatre.

Before Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, Kern, Rodgers, Hammerstein and company, European operetta was filling the great European capitals with tales of exotic locales, derring-do drama, gorgeously lush melodies, romance, sentiment and color -- all at a fever pitch. Composed by classically-trained Europeans, these operettas would gradually evolve in the American Musical on this side of the Atlantic.

Join Fred Miller as he presents the history, biography and psychology of this evolution while sitting at a piano singing the superlative songs of his heroes. His "Lectures-in-Song"  combine his intellectual and musical passions into a joyful tribute to the boundlessly rich field of American Popular Song.
