 THE ROMANCE READER reviews: Naughty Marietta by Nan Ryan
Naughty Marietta begins with a wealthy dying man snatching Cole Heflin from the hangman's noose, literally.
Marietta has no love for the grandfather she has never met, a man who turned his back on her and her mother.
Obviously the fact that everyone but Marietta knows that she has no singing talent is a jab at Marietta: that she is vain, selfish and not the sharpest tool in the shed.

 Herbert: Naughty Marietta / Byess, Ohio Light Opera, et al (Music)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
For many years, I have owned a set of LPs with almost the complete score of Victor Herbert's "Naughty Marietta" and I once begged the Smithsonian people in vain to release it on CD.
And on top of that generosity, they provide periodic recordings of their efforts, mostly done live (which means some audience noises, acoustical compromises here and there--but by and large polished results that are amazing).
Naughty Marietta is better known than some of the things OLO does, but has not until now enjoyed a complete digital recording.

 Tulsa World: Nice to be naughty: LOOK’s ‘Naughty Marietta’ is fun for both audience and performers
Light Opera Oklahoma’s “Naughty Marietta” is a combination of campy comedy, skillful singing and a glorious orchestra.
To be honest, LOOK doesn’t really “do” the show “Naughty Marietta.” For one thing, it would take too long.
Saturday’s performance was the official opening night, but there were still a few technical bugs that hadn’t been stamped out: stage lights that would go out before the actors did, props that would stay in their places, a line of lyrics or a final note of a song that went awry.
