FRANCIS LOPEZ (1916-1995)
Opérette à grand spectacle in two acts and twenty scenes
Libretto by Félix Gandera & Raymond Vincy
Season 2017-18
Duration: 2h40
Incl. 1 intermission

With irresistible rhythms, under the Mexican sun,

Francis Lopez takes us from Lausanne to Mexico City!

There is nothing left to say about this big show operetta, the best of its genre. When it was created, the public and critics alike unanimously applauded this unforgettable performance in twenty magnificent acts. Despite the lightness of the plot, it is one of Francis Lopez’ best works of music, the genre requiring only that there be a steady flow of the most beautiful, intoxicating and catchy airs. In 1956, five years after it was created, the operetta became a film starring Annie Cordy and Bourvil, alongside Luis Mariano.

First performed in Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris, 15 December 1951
