Tabasco: A Burlesque Opera
Saturday, January 25-28
2:30 PM CST
Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre
616 St. Peter St.
New Orleans, LA 70116
This 1894 opera centers on a Middle Eastern pasha who
craved spicy food. Enraged by the blandness of fare provided
by his royal kitchen, the pasha threatened to chop off the
head of his French chef (actually a masquerading Irishman).
The chef frantically searched the city for seasonings and ran
into a blind beggar who gave him a mysterious potion. The
concoction turned out to be Tabasco brand pepper sauce. Its
piquant flavor satisfied the pasha and saved the day.
