Lischen und Fritzchen and Le 66
Opera Kansas will present two lighthearted one act Offenbach operettas. The Prairie Pines’ bridge and pathways will serve as the French countryside for “Lischen und Fritzchen” and “Le 66”. Between these short operettas enjoy intermission by walking the gardens and imagining you are on the Road to Alsace under a full moon!
