The Story of Hortense Schneider
Bouffe! takes the audience into the bohemian world of 1850s Paris.
After making her début in Offenbach's boulevard theatre, the young Hortense quickly finds success in the new craze for Bouffe, the new risqué style of French operetta.
Known to Chichester audiences for the emotionally entralling In & Out of Love, RedBlondeProductions now bring their unique style of opera theatre to the Assembly Room. The music of Donizetti and Offenbach tell the story of Paris's greatest diva and courtesan.
"If you miss it, you'll be kicking yourself."
