In our 48th year of high quality live musical theater productions, Lyric Theatre presents a world premiere musical biography of the famous composer, Jacques Offenbach, conceived and written by San Francisco-based, award-winning, ASCAP-affiliated composer Ken Malucelli.
"Cher Jacques!" walks, talks and sings its way through the life of Offenbach: childhood; family; friends; romance; marriage; celebrities; history; politics; fame and fortune.
Over the years Lyric Theatre has mounted productions of "La Perichole," "La Belle Helene," "La Vie Parisienne," and "Orpheus in the Underworld". The show will include highlights from these operas.
Semi staged, with a cast of nine seasoned Bay Area singing artists, accompanied by our professional pianists on twin electric keyboards.
