The Lucky Star Summary

The Lucky Star by Ivan Caryll, Charles H. Brookfield and Helen Lenoir

To prolong the inevitable, a king attempts to preserve a painter's life when he discovers, through his astrological chart, that their fates are suddenly intertwined. The monarch is forced to keep him alive for his own personal reasons. King Ouf is a powerful leader with a weakness for astrology, myths and superstition. During a reading, it is revealed that he is spiritually linked to a traveling painter named Lazuli. If any harm comes to Lazuli, the same fate will befall the king. Therefore, King Ouf declares that when he dies, his astrologer Siroco must also be killed. In an attempt at self-preservation, both men work tirelessly to keep Lazuli alive. Originally composed by Brookfield and Caryll, The Lucky Star was later revised by Helen Lenoir. It's a witty comedy known for its intricate plot and memorable music. Following its debut, the opera ran for more than 140 performances at London's Savoy Theatre. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Lucky Star is both modern and readable.
