Gräfin Mariza

- Not available -

The classic "Countess Mariza" deals with a love story against the background of the economic crisis. The impoverished Count Tassilo has hired himself as a steward in the admired by admirers Countess Mariza. The burgeoning love is disturbed with the appearance of Tassilo's sister Lisa, who is considered his lover. But Lisa finds her luck with the sympathetic impostor Koloman Zsupán; and Tassilos Aunt Bozena helps to make sure that there is a happy ending for the main couple ... With English surtitles
...
Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim, the book author and songwriter of West Side Story, and composer Jule Styne ("Blondines Prefer", "Funny Girl") bundled their talents in 1959 for one of the greatest Broadway shows of all time. "Gypsy", going back to real people, was even called the "mother of all musicals". Mama Rose does not want to see her daughters in the limelight, where she had always dreamed herself. Regardless of losses, she first runs the career of June, the younger one. As this blows, Rose's relentless energy focuses on Louise. This mutates into a burlesque star and the ambitious mother stands alone ... Maria Happel embodies as Mama Rose "one of the few really complex characters of the American musical" (Clive Barnes).

"Love is like a wild bird, whoever wants to tame it has a hard time, in vain you will call for him, if he does not want, he will not come here," Carmen sings.

How inevitably love subjugates reason is scarcely as passionately portrayed in any other opera as in Bizet's masterpiece.

Since the revised version of the original "Opéra comique" was performed at the Vienna Court Opera in October 1875, the fatal love story between Micaëla, Don José, Carmen and Escamillo is regarded as one of the front runners in the operatic charts.

As of January, the Volksoper is showing the successful production after a production by Guy Joosten.
