Operetta by Franz Lehár
Libretto by Béla Jenbach
Opening Night: August 10, 2019
Location: Kongress & TheaterHaus Bad Ischl
With the third performance, the Lehár Festival presents in semi-staged form a work of the Bad Ischler honorary citizen Franz Lehár that has never before been seen at the festival. The audience is not only enchanted by wonderful waltz music, because Franz Lehár surprises in this work also with modern jazz melodies.
Clo-Clo Mustache is a famous variety singer. Among her many admirers is also the mayor, to whom she lovingly says “Daddy”. One day Clo-Clo asks him in writing for financial help, but the letter with the expression “Mon chére Dad” reaches his wife, which involves the mayor and his supposed daughter in a lot of turbulence.
The German classic label cpo will release a recording of the production as a CD. CLO-CLO by Franz Lehár – a rarity that should not be missed.
