Join WWU Opera in Las Vegas (or the FireHouse Arts and Events Center in Fairhaven… wink, wink) for this hilarious, all-ages, 1980s-inspired adaptation of The Anonymous Lover by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges.

The story centers around Léontine, a widow disenchanted with the idea of love, but nonetheless ardently pursued by a secret admirer. The events unfold at Léontine’s Chapel of Love in Las Vegas, where our cynical leading lady is hosting a wedding for her niece Jeannette. The news that her admirer may show up at the wedding in person turns up the excitement—and the fun!

The production is presented as chamber opera in two-acts with piano and a cast of ten singers. The music is sung in French with projected supertitles and dialogue in English.

Seating is limited, so don’t wait to purchase your tickets. Arrive early and chose a seat in one of the coveted wedding pews to be closer to the action!
