About The Flower of Hawaii

Escape to paradise with Folks Operetta as we give the American premiere of Paul Abrahám’s exotic jazz operetta, "The Flower of Hawaii." Tinged with American jazz and Hawaiian guitar, Abrahám’s captivating score will take you back to the golden era of Hollywood musicals.

Inspired by the story of Princess Ka’iulani, "The Flower of Hawaii" takes aim at American colonialism, but never takes on that subject too deeply. Laya, a Hawaiian princess, must choose between the American naval officer she loves and the Hawaiian prince to whom she was betrothed as a child. Meanwhile, no less than three other couples must find their way through various romantic complications before all of them arrive at Happily Ever After.

Amy Hutchison directs and Anthony Barrese conducts the 21-piece orchestra.
