Lyrics by Robert Gilbert
Opening Night: July 13, 2019
Location: Kongress & TheaterHaus Bad Ischl
Im Salzkammergut, da kann man gut lustig sein! This song line turns to program when the Lehár Festival Bad Ischl invites its audience to one of the most famous operettas in history. Director Thomas Enzinger will re-stage WHITE HORSE INN and presents the entertaining revue, in which waltz, foxtrot and snappy hits provide the best of humor in a star cast – among others with Ramesh Nair, Susanna Hirschler, Helga Papouschek and Kurt Schreibmayer.
Look forward to the rapid, cheeky and cheerful love story of head waiter Leopold and the hotel owner Josefa Vogelhuber. However, she actually raves for her regular guest Dr. Siedler, who, however, falls in love with the young girl from Berlin Ottilie. So it comes to a haunting love-havoc of numerous, dazzling guests who are not only looking for recreation in the beautiful Salzkammergut. Among them is the eternally cursing manufacturer Wilhelm Giesecke and the maudlin Professor Dr. Hinzelmann with his lisping daughter Klärchen.
Waltz meets a hearty holiday mood, because “Die ganze Welt ist himmelblau” and everyone wonders: “Was kann der Sigismund dafür, dass er so schön ist?” Numerous crowd pleasers await you and, of course, the emperor is also honored!
