THE GOLDEN APPLE
With The Golden Apple, librettist John Latouche and composer Jerome Moross virtually invented a new musico-dramatic form. This delightful show, best described as a “musical comedy opera,” offers a consistently surprising and enchanting collection of contradictions. Based on Homer’s epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey, it presents classical Greek myth as accessible American folklore. It combines satire and sentiment, one-liner jokes and three-dimensional characters, giddy fun and genuine ideas, all in a commercial entertainment that is also a work of art.
LAZY AFTERNOON was the breakaway hit of THE GOLDEN APPLE. It has been recorded by over 150 artists since its premiere by KAYE BALLARD. Enjoy this video featuring recordings by some of America’s top artists. With permission of Warner Chapell.
