Bastien und Bastienne

Bastienne, a shepherdess, fears that her “dearest friend”, Bastien, has forsaken her for another pretty face, and decides to go into the pasture to be comforted by her flock of lambs.

A Musical Evening at Choufleuri’s

This production is in the public domain

Composed by Jacques Offenbach

Mr. Choufleuri is about to present a big, expensive musical for all of Paris when his three principal singers defect from the project. Last- minute replacements are provided by Mr. Choufleuri’s daughter, Ernestine; her lover, Babylas (whom Ernestine sneaks into the event); and Mr. Choufleuri himself. Babylas uses this occasion to force Choufleuri into granting him Ernestine’s hand in marriage along with a large dowry.
