La Mascotte

Castle Square Theatre, Boston / October 26, 1896


La mascotte ("The Mascot") is an opéra comique by Edmond Audran.
The French libretto was by Alfred Duru and Henri Charles Chivot.
The story concerns a farm girl who is believed to bring good luck
to whoever possesses her, so long as she remains a virgin.

The title (in English) initiated the use of the word 'mascot'
in the English language to mean an animal, human, or thing
which brought luck.
