Golden Dreams — A New Musical

GoldenDreamsARTBook, Music and Lyrics by James G. Lambert & C. Michael Perry

(For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, Church Groups, Youth Theatres)

A love story, like all operettas, in the style of “New Moon”, “Desert Song” and “Naughty Marietta”. But this one is set in the romantic atmosphere of the California Gold Rush. It spins the tale of the dashing Mexican-American Robin Hood figure of Joaquin Murietta. The Hermanos de Murietta, a band of Vaqueros, have been recovering gold from the corrupt bankers and profiteers and returning it to the rightful owners, the miners. However, as all heroes do, Joaquin falls in love with the lovely Jennifer Wells, the banker villain’s daughter, and the plots interweave as the story winds its way to a happy conclusion, like all operettas.
