Lilac Time

6 June @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$17 – $32

PLEASE NOTE:  New venue and new start time for evening performances

The South Australian Light Opera Society is delighted to present our latest operetta, Lilac Time, at the Domain Theatre in the Marion Cultural Centre.  Because our usual venue is undergoing repairs, we have had to change to a new venue and change the dates of our shows for this year.  We will also be changing the starting time for our evening performances to 7:30 pm, meaning an earlier night for everyone.  Matinees will remain at 2:00 pm.

Lilac Time is set in Vienna in 1820 and is based loosely on the life of composer Franz Schubert, played by Andrew McKinnon.  Schubert and his playboy friend, Baron Schober (Frikkie Jacobs) are vying for the attention of Mitzi (Katrin Treloar), the youngest daughter of glassmaker, Otto Zell (David Roberts), and his wife (Bronwyn Calvett).

Schubert’s friends, Kuppell (Andrew Winter), Schwind (Peter Muller) and Vogl (Christian Pollnitz) enjoy the fine Vienna weather and food at every opportunity.  Meanwhile, Mitzi’s sisters, Fritzi (Kathy Cilento) and Litzi (Carmine Clarke) are keen to marry their boyfriends, Binder (Bob Daniel) and Brun (Phil Rodda).  Complications follow with the arrival of temperamental prima donna, Taliani (Kendall Geisler), at a party to celebrate the ‘double wedding,’ out to catch her philandering paramour, Schober.

Beautiful music written by Schubert himself has been adapted for our enjoyment to such songs as Hark, Hark the Lark, A Song to Remember, Jolly Good Fellows and Lilac Time in this entertaining operetta.  Costumes of the period complete the scene as the story evolves in old Vienna.

Lilac Time is Directed by Pam Tucker with Musical Direction by Helen Loveday.
