  • Overview

    The Ship’s Captain, a one-act opera produced by Musicians of Ma’alwyck, will be performed in 3 local
    venues.
    Two young single sisters, a curious will left by their uncle guardian, and a mysterious young man figure
    in this Gilbert and Sullivanesque plot of the delightful 1817 vaudeville opera The Ship’s Captain. Carl
    August Blum, a popular composer and actor, crafted this clever one act piece using entirely melodies of
    Mozart, Beethoven and German folksongs. Like Mozart’s Magic Flute, the dialogue between the songs
    tells a story on many levels. Written for three singers and three instrumentalists, The Ship’s Captain will
    leave you laughing at the antics and humming the memorable melodies.
    Musicians of Ma’alwyck has reconstructed several historic operas, including Thomas Arne’s Alfred and
    William Shield’s The Poor Soldier. This production features three former Glimmerglass Festival Young
    Artists: Yvonne Trobe and Joelle Lachance as the sisters , and Charles Eaton as Waller. The production is
    directed by Byron A. Nilsson, who also translated the libretto into English.
