                  The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein loves men in smart uniforms. Although her duchy is really much too insignificant to get caught up in war, the Grand Duchess loves to blow the trumpet to ready her strapping 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 ducal career ladder. Jacques Offenbach’s »The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein« was the hit of the Paris World Exhibition of 1867. And this cheeky comedy, which pokes fun at militarism, nepotism and opportunism, has over the years lost none of its drive and wit. This staging at the Semperoper is by director Josef E. Köpplinger, a specialist for entertaining musical theatre.
