Coups de Roulis - Messager (early 60s staging of Twenties French operette 2 CDs)

£6.99

Product description

Andre Messager (1853-1929) composed thirty operettes, in his time. The Frenchman, was also a conductor, organist, and pianist, and benefitted from, coming-of-age in what was a golden era of French music ; his tutors, included Camille Saint-Saens, and Gabriel Faure.

The synopsis of the operette, 'Coups de Roulis', is a heady mixture of two, separate romances, set against a backdrop of French naval life, on board the fictional battleship "Montesquieu". The romances, in question, are firstly a love-triangle involving politician Puy-Pradal's daughter, Beatrice, and two naval officers, Commander Gerville, and young handsome Lieutenant Kermao, whom she obviously prefers. This romance is spelled out, in Act One. The second romance that takes place, involves the politician-father himself, Puy-Pradal, and the actress Sola Myrrhis (appearing in Act Two) who sees Puy-Pradal as a 'career-leg-up' conquest, so that she can become a member of the Comedie Francais.

Matters become complicated (as romances often do), and the matters end with Puy-Pradal's re-shuffle in the Government cabinet ...
