Light Cavalry

Light Light
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.
