Written in 1910, Rida Johnson Young’s Naughty Marietta delves into poignant issues close to the hearts of many, addressing themes of slavery, mistresses, true love, and a woman’s right to choose her path in life. The operetta paints a vivid portrait of Marietta, a character ahead of her time, emblematic of early feminist ideals. As she grapples with societal norms, she epitomizes the struggle of women yearning for liberation and self-determination.
But beyond its rich narrative, “Naughty Marietta” stands out for its enchanting score. With haunting melodies that linger long after the performance ends, audiences will be treated to Herbert classics like “I’m Falling in Love With Someone,” “Tramp, Tramp, Tramp,” “Neath the Southern Moon,” “The Italian Street Song,” and the unforgettable “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life.” This is American operetta at its finest.
