Listen to Andrew Patner’s Critics Choice commentary for WFMT:
Chicago Folks Operetta is proud to present the American premiere of Emmerich Kálmán’s western operetta, Arizona Lady. Directed by Bill Walters and choreographed by August Tye, this romantic operetta will carry you back to the rough-and-tumble, happy-go-lucky wild west of singing cowboys Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. This was Kálmán’s last operetta, published posthumously in 1953. Featuring a new English translation by Hersh Glagov and Gerald Frantzen, this will not only be the American premiere but the first performance of the show worldwide in over 50 years.. Where: Theatre Building Chicago (Stage 773) 1225 W. Belmont Ave. When: Evening performances at 7:30 PM on July 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, and 31. Matinée performances at 2 PM on July 18, 24, 25, 31, and August 1. Click on Buy Tickets to view all Showtimes. Scroll down to see videos.
