Description: Chris and the Wonderful Lamp (1899) is an enchanting retelling of the Aladdin legend, while Showing Off Before Company (1919) is a clever routine Sousa often used to open matinee concerts. The painstaking reconstruction of Sisterhood of the States (1915) allows us to hear the ‘ballet’ that incorporated music from each of the 48 states for a spectacular show in 1916.
