Victor Herbert Renaissance Project [View Company]
Orange Blossoms (1922)

Come celebrate as the Victor Herbert Renaissance Project LIVE! opens its 5th Season in Christ & St. Stephens Episcopal Church with the final full theatrical score composed by Victor Herbert. Amazingly, you will hear no Overture and no Grand Finale.  It was 1922, and Victor Herbert was definitely entering the new post-World War I America. This very modern Victor Herbert work contains one of his most haunting love songs – “A Kiss In The Dark.” As well as a special favorite from last season . . . “Way Out West in Jersey.”
This is Herbert's 44th Broadway production with an original libretto was penned by French female librettist, Fred de Gresac with lyrics from B.D. deSylva later known as Buddie deSylva.  This VHRP LIVE! version has been respectfully revised by librettist Alyce Mott.
