Ambroise Thomas’ three-act opera comique was first and last presented at AVA in the 1969-70 season. Based on Goethe’s novel Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre, the opera is set in Germany and Italy in the late 18th century and features the famous “Je suis Titania” aria. The opera was mentioned into two famous works, James Joyce’s The Dead and Will Cather’s The Professor’s House. This is a fully-staged piano production, sung in French with English supertitles.

All performances will be held at AVA’s Helen Corning Warden Theater.
