This beloved classic will be performed fully staged and costumed. Come hear Timothy Culver, tenor, sing the operetta favorite song "You are my heart's delight" ("Dein ist mein ganzes Herz"). A love story that is both heart-warming and heart-breaking: it takes us from Vienna, the capital of operetta, to China, the magical Land of Smiles.

Sung in English.
