Tabasco: A Burlesque Opera January 25-28, 2018


Have you ever asked yourself how Tabasco’s famous hot sauce came to be? Well, you won’t get the answer here, but you’ll laugh yourself silly with this delightful comic operetta. For our 75th Anniversary and New Orleans’ Tricentennial, we celebrate this classically spicy sauce as international conductor Paul Mauffray brings his edition of George Whitefield Chadwick’s delightful score to life.

This chamber series jewel is the rarity of the season, with a magically delicious libretto and a rollicking score that includes full orchestra and chorus. Come enjoy this wonderful historic revival at Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré in the heart of the French Quarter. Learn the mystery of Tabasco, and you’ll never eat bland food again! Learn more about the history of the Burlesque Opera of Tabasco.
