Opera

The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein

Jacques Offenbach

Opera-bouffe in three acts Libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy Performed in German with German and English supertitles


The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein loves men in smart uniforms. Although her duchy is really much too insignificant for war, the Grand Duchess loves to blow the trumpet to ready the fit soldiers for attack. She is particularly fond of the simple soldier Fritz, whom she quickly promotes from private to general – but, just as fast, he slips back down the career ladder. Jacques Offenbach’s cheeky comedy »The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein« will be directed at the Semperoper by Josef E. Köpplinger, a specialist for entertaining musical theatre.
