Victor Herbert Renaissance Project LIVE! to Present MLLE. MODISTE

Continue the celebration of VHRP LIVE's return to live performance on April 26-27 and enjoy Mlle. Modiste at their new home at The Theater at St. Jeans. The New Victor Herbert Orchestra will be occupying the orchestra pit. Come hear Herbert as he was meant to be heard (just a tad smaller).

THE PLOT? Ah, Fifi! Everyone loves Fifi! Customers, soldiers, and especially Etienne. But she's a hat shop girl with big dreams. Madame Cecile, Etienne's uncle, and an American businessman - all have other plans for Fifi! Enjoy "The Mascot of the Troop," "If I Were on The Stage," "The Time and the Place and the Girl," "I Want What I Want When I Want It," and "Hats Make the Woman." That's just a hint of this wonderful score - hidden in one of those songs is the most famous of all, "Kiss Me Again.

Mlle. Modiste features: Stephanie Bacastow, Sarah Bleasdale, Keith Broughton, Andrew Buck, Susan Case, Alexa Devlin, Charlotte Detrick, Vince Gover, Mariah Muehler, Jonathan Fox Powers, Christopher Robin Sapp, Alkis Sarantinos, David Seatter, Sarah Caldwell Smith and Matthew Wages.

The Victor Herbert Renaissance Project LIVE! is the world's only company exclusively dedicated to reviving the work of Victor Herbert, an Irish American composer, conductor, musician, and orchestration legend. Herbert indelibly influenced the foundations of the American musical theater by writing for and placing the full orchestra into the Broadway Theater Pit in 1894. Founded in 2014 by the company's Artistic Director Alyce Mott, a leading Herbert historian and librettist, and Music Director Michael Thomas, VHRP LIVE! is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation and is supported by generous funding from The Victor Herbert Foundation.
