|THE DESERT SONG - 1986
General Birabeau has been sent to Morocco to root out the Riff bandits, especially their daredevil leader, known as the Red Shadow. He can look for little help from his milksop son, Pierre, who spends all his time mooning over Captain Fontaine's fiancée, the lovely Margot.
But Margot secretly yearns to be swept into the arms of some bold, dashing sheikh, perhaps even the Red Shadow himself. To her surprise, when her Eastern hero does in fact abduct her he treats her with every Western consideration.
Music by Sigmund Romberg
Book and lyrics by Otto Harbach Oscar Hammerstein II Frank Mandel
The Desert Song first opened on Broadway on November 30, 1926 and ran for 471 performances.
