This comedy-farce adapted from an early nineteenth century French comedy relates the happenings of one day in the colorful lives of the actress Micaela ‘Perrichole’ and the Viceroy of Peru. In a hilarious battle of wits, the spirited and fearless Micaela takes on not only the Viceroy, her jealous lover, but also the entire lay and religious establishment of colonial Lima. Though decidedly larger than life, the characters of this witty romp exhibit great personal appeal, seem quite contemporary, and retain their humanity throughout.
