To gratify the pleasure seeking mood of Paris under the second Emplrejacques Offenbach had created a new type of m u s i c a l theatre characterized by wit a n d charm, burlesque that poked fun l i g h t l y and music that effervesced with gaiety. The epitome of these components, Orphei. r a n k s as a classic Innovation a n d the f i r s t true operetta. The later Viennese operettas a n d the English school of cfilbert a n d . . S u l l i v a n derived much Inspiration f r o m Offenbach but none ever surpassed his brilliant synthesis of satirical drama and enchanting  music.  The Franco-Prussian war brought about the end of the second Empire - Offenbach's popularity began to wane, and at the same time, his health deteriorated. After a financially disastrous tour of the united s t a t e s he drifted into seclusion and began his only attempt at grand opera, Les C-ontes d'Hoffmann, which remained unfinished and unorchestrated at his death. Notwithstanding this great work, the operettas have secured a firm hold on the public a n d , as we approach the 125th anniversary of his death (2.005), Offenbach's irreverent and enchanting scores seem as accessible a n d v i t a l as ever.  Public opli/u-o^v's costume Qraciou£>lij supplied by  acquesvert Located  O\A  the third -floor at the B a y  opera Tea at feobsoiA,  T>OW\A£DWIA,  A relaxing afternoon  s>quare  jaiA,23  With the U B C opera Ei^senA.bLe For reservations Contact 0&6M-) ?22 557 4 L  opera excerpts ac-tompanled by a delicious, pastry  buffet with coffee and a selection of teas In tme English style .  us f o r o u r S p r t i A ^ P r o d u c t i o n !
