ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS
WEDDING BY LANTERN LIGHT
Comic Opera By Jean Jacques Offenbach
Peter, the young owner of a large farm, has taken the guardianship of his cousin Lischen, at his uncle's request. Lischen is secretly in love with Peter and asks her uncle's advice. Peter asks a loan from his uncle. The latter promises Peter a treasure and tells him to be under the old oak in the garden when the evening bells ring, when he will find his treasure. Lischen gets the same kind of a letter from her old uncle. Two old village widows, Annemarie and Katherine, have heard of the treasure which is to belong to Peter, and are quarreling about it. Lischen, for the fun of it, seats herself beneath the old oak to await the arrival of her lover. Peter, likewise, strolls there to dig for the treasure. He sees Lischen who fell asleep on the bench, finds his uncle's letter in her hand, and recognizes in Lischen the treasure his uncle had promised him.
