Gypsy Baron Waltzes into Rockdale
Rockdale Opera Company proudly presents The Gypsy Baron at Rockdale Town Hall for a limited run of four performances from November 9 to 17, 2019.
With music by Johann Strauss and libretto by Ignaz Schnitzer, The Gypsy Baron tells the story of the marriage of a nobleman (returned from exile), a beautiful gypsy girl who is revealed as the daughter of a Turkish Pasha and the hunt for hidden treasure. It involves larger than life and colourful characters including a fortune-telling Romany queen, a self-serving pig farmer, a self-important mayor, a rascally commissioner, a band of gypsies, as well as star-crossed lovers.
Since its premiere in 1885 this has remained one of the most popular of all Viennese operettas. It brims with beautiful waltzes, stirring marches and joyous polkas by the celebrated Waltz King.
Rockdale Opera Company’s production team features Musical Director Kohki Iwasaki and Director David Brennan.
Join Rockdale Opera Company for The Gypsy Baron showing for a limited run this November 9-17 at Rockdale Town Hall, featuring Strauss’ iconic Viennese waltzes.
