Light Cavalry


The Guild will perform “Light Cavalry” and plans to make the first commercially available recording of the show. Written in 1866, Light Cavalry is one of the earlier Viennese operettas. Although the overture is world-famous, the show itself is not. This production is the first in English, and marks an American premiere. Considering its rarity, the score of “Light Cavalry” has been found to be delightful, with charming comedy numbers, rollicking dances and beautiful arias. Hungarian themes stand out, the first time such music was incorporated in a Viennese operetta.
