VHRP LIVE! is the only production company in the world dedicated solely to producing the works of American composer Victor Herbert (1859-1924). We produce three events per season, commencing, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017.
This year audiences are enjoying: The Princess Pat, Son of Dublin and the 100th Anniversary of Eileen
With the production of Eileen we also launched the New Victor Herbert Orchestra, a small union freelance ensemble which we hope to grow each season.
In order to keep costs at a minmium, we produce "pocket operetta." Our casts are a sixteen members or less. Our production values consist of formal wear (black tie for men and gowns for women) with minimal costume pieces to indicate character. We use no scenery, no special lighting and minimal hand props. Our space is the lovely Christ & St. Stephens Church on the upper west side of New York City in the Lincoln Center area. In short, our entire focus is on Herbert's incredible music. We produce primarily with piano accompaniment and now with a season ending orchestral project.
You can feel total confidence that your donation will support either our talented singers, musicians or space rental.
