Present Company is proud to stage this romantic musical icon.
As at its premier nearly 100 years ago, The Desert Song is both contemporary and controversial, focussing on issues that are the headlines of the day. The French hero, Pierre, assumes the role of the Red Shadow to lead the Moroccan Riffs in their struggle against French colonial oppression and in this guise he wins the hand of Margot, the woman he loves.
Present Company invites you to sit back and let the sublime music of this Sigmund Romberg operetta, once more weave its spell.
Present Company uses a non-professional cast with professional principals and orchestra.
