Love, hate and hot sauce are themes of a 19th-century comic opera being produced this week to kick off New Orleans' 300th anniversary. It's also the 150th anniversary for Tabasco sauce and the New Orleans Opera's 75th. Chadwick attended a music conservatory in Leipzig, Germany, a decade after W.S. Gilbert – of famed British duo Gilbert and Sullivan – and probably studied under some of the same masters, Mauffray said.About the same time, the great Antonin Dvorak, then director of New York's National Conservatory of Music of America, presented Chadwick with a national composition prize for one of his symphonies.Chadwick had Seabrook arrested and took back his music.
