French Carnival Operettas in Venice,
reviewed by GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

For Carnival, the Centre de Musique Romantique Française offers a program of light music in its headquarters, the Palazzetto Bru Zane in Venice — see 'Carnival in Venice', 12 February 2016, 'A Wealthy Maverick', 21 April 2015 and 'A Real Joy', 16 February 2015.
