" THE ENTANGLEMENTS OF LOVE "
An operetta potpourri
Composers | Franz Lehar,Johann Strauss and Robert Stolz
Librettists | Desiree Till and Coenraad Bloemendal
Arrangements | Avalon Rusk
You can’t buy love. Nor can you measure it. But an artist, such as the
singer in this operetta, reveals the many facets of love in all its moods.
Can love be acquired? Is it the fluttering of a young girl’s heart? Is it the uniting of souls? Is it compassion? Is it a response to beauty? A desire?
Is it projection? Is love blind? Does mutual and reciprocal love make it all worth the trouble?
This ride on the roller-coaster of love has its highs and lows, its ups and downs, but at the end of the journey the traveler is exhilarated and moved.
