Marie Lenormand: La Périchole
Closing the 2012-13 season at New York City Center is a new production of Jacques Offenbach’s operetta La Périchole. With a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy, this lyrical satire verges on all-out farce. It is loosely based on the life of one of the 18th century’s most famous Peruvians, Micaela Villegas, a wildly popular entertainer who was mistress to the head of state. In the opera, Villegas becomes La Périchole, a Peruvian street-singer who maintains a love triangle between the Spanish viceroy and Piquillo, her true love and fellow street-singer, to save herself from destitution. This final production of the season will be directed by Christopher Alden, who previously helmed some of the most critically lauded stagings in NYC Opera’s recent history, including Don Giovanni, A Quiet Place, and this season’s Così fan tutte.
