A joyful and infectious pastiche that marries some of Offenbachs best music with Don Whites witty and irreverent English version of the discovery of America. Weaving together music from lesser-known Offenbach operattas, this opera tells the story of Columbus asking Queen Isabella of Spain for funding for his journey to America. An alcoholic nymphomaniac Isabella donates her jewellery in a kind of strip show. Three ex-wives follow Columbus onto his ship and he is seasick for the whole journey. On arrival in the New World he discovers the cola nut.

London Mozart Players, Alun Francis
