One of Lehar’s most popular operettas, Eva was premiered in Vienna in 1911. SYNOPSIS: Eva, the foster-child of Bernard Larousse, the foreman of a glass factory in Brussels, is celebrating her twentieth birthday. She is immediately attracted to Octave Flaubert, the dashing son of the owner of the factory who has arrived to take over the management of his father’s business. Octave tries to seduce Eva and as a result finds himself in opposition to Larousse and the factory workers who are anxious to defend Eva’s honour. Eva, realising Octave’s true intentions, runs away to Paris in disgust but, having tasted the life of the demi-monde, finally finds refuge in the arms of the love-sick Octave
