How could anyone resist an opera that opens with a tragicomic funeral for a deceased parrot held by the pupils of a girls' convent school? The girls - this is a French convent so they know a thing or two - decide that their beloved pet must be replaced in some form and select the hopelessly innocent young man Valentin to be the happy recipient of all the doting attention they used to lavish on the parrot.
Music Jacques Offenbach
