The Fashionable Lady

Description: The first ballad opera written by an American to be performed in London at the Theatre in Goodman’s-Fields in 1730. A delightful comedy replete with acerbic wit, it is similar in style to John Gay’s "The Beggar’s Opera" and enjoyed success at its premiere but was thereafter relegated to obscurity. With text by James Ralph, a friend of Benjamin Franklin, it utilizes popular song tunes of the era. The present work is a reconstruction of the original with free realization and a new overture by John Craton.
Length: 03:15
Total Acts: 3
Orchestration: 2 flutes, oboe, bassoon, violins, violas, violoncellos
