Emmanuel Chabrier's Une Éducation Manquée (An Incomplete Education)

This charming 19th-century opéra-comique about adolescent love is directed by Bernard Deletré, with costumes by Patricia Forelle. The production features a mesmerizing cast with Sophie Junker (Denise in Grétry's L'Épreuve Villageoise) and, in their Opera Lafayette debuts, Amel Brahim Djelloul, and Dominique Cote. Presented in Chabrier's original version with piano (Jeffery Watson), this ingenious production also incorporates additional songs by Chabrier and Offenbach.

Performance Timing: Approximately 1 hour with no intermission
