Winter Opera Saint Louis opens its eleventh season with Sigmund Romberg's charming operetta The Student Prince. Karl Franz is the heir to the German kingdom Karlsberg, and as such, his future has been plotted out for him, including his eventual marriage to a woman he's never met. He's socially awkward, surrounded by older people and bereft of companions his own age. Karl is sent to university to remedy these flaws, and soon finds himself caught up in a whirl of social drinking, real friends and first love. Unfortunately, the object of his affections is Kathie, a biergarten waitress; as a royal, he can't marry a commoner. But college life has a way of swamping a person's priorities. Winter Opera Saint Louis presents this atypical love story at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday (November 10 and 12) at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts (425 South Lindbergh Boulevard; Tickets are $35 to $55.
