**** Recommended **** Folks Operetta’s production of “The Csárdás Princess” is a delightful ‘rich-guy-falls-for-poor-girl’ story with lots of obstacles in the path to true love. As most of you know, I’m not an opera fan, but the combination of a talented cast with gorgeous voices, a story with a happy ending and a surfeit of Viennese waltzes made it enjoyable. 3 ½ Spotlights
The Csárdás Princess runs through July 22nd at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Avenue, Chicago. Valet parking is available. Although “The Csárdás Princess” has three acts, running time is still around 2 hours, with just one intermission. Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm; Sunday at 2:00 pm. Tickets range from $35-$40. FYI www.folksoperetta.org.
