Consummate tenor Mario Lanza and Kathryn Grayson star in this colorful, song-filled romance. Lush settings, lighthearted comedy and soaring music flow freely in this lively tale of a Cajun fisherman who leaves the bayou and falls in love with a beautiful New Orleans opera star. J. Carrol Naish costars as Pepe’s (Lanza) irrepressible uncle, while David Niven lends his elegant presence as the director of Suzette’s (Grayson) opera company and Rita Moreno is seen kicking up her heels in the “Tina-Lina,” a wildly exuberant dance number. The triumphant soundtrack features arias from “Mignon,” “Carmen,” “La Traviata” and “Martha.” Lanza and Grayson also perform two stunningly passionate duets from Madame Butterfly and the popular Academy Award®-nominated song “Be My Love.” Break out the bubbly and join in the celebration of this rare vintage musical!
