What happens when a good-looking, double-crossing cross-dresser sets out to win back her lover from the arms of a young seductress? Find out in the very French La Double Coquette, a charming revision of Antoine Dauvergne’s 1753 opéra comique. Modern-day French composer Gérard Pesson’s additions seamlessly complement the original score. Combined with Pierre Alferi’s cheeky new libretto, La Double Coquette is delicious light comedy brought to life by the gifted musicians of Ensemble Amarillis.
