The Golden Age of Hollywood – all sweeping staircases and gorgeous gowns – inspires this sumptuous new 1900s staging by award-winning West End director Cal McCrystal (physical comedy consultant and director for One Man, Two Guvnors and Paddington 2). McCrystal brings his signature brand of exhilarating comedy and irrepressible energy to a dazzling show full of colour and movement that never pauses for breath: whirling you around the dance-floors and boudoirs of Belle Époque Paris with a song on its lips, a spring in its step, and a scandalous suggestion of what to do once the lights go down…

A brand-new English translation by Stephen Plaice and Marcia Bellamy (In the Market for Love) puts comedy front and centre, updating a much-loved period piece for a new era. And there will also be surprises in the score: bringing together all the show’s classic numbers with music Lehár later added to a piece with a long and ever-evolving life.
