Live opera - fully staged - new English translation
A wonderfully zany French masterpiece with sparkling music. In a travelling circus, the dancer Zanetta dusting a waxwork of Princess Trébizonde accidentally breaks off its nose. So she installs herself in its position, impersonating the statue. A visiting prince falls in love with the
“waxwork”… A talented cast bring this hilarious farce to life.
