Twenty different roles – two actors! Dagmar Manzel as operetta diva Manon Cavallini also plays her suitor Raoul Severac and the father of her daughter Lucy. Max Hopp as this very daughter, Lucy, also plays all five of Cavallini's lovers and Lucy's family friend!
A fast-paced and breathless tour de force which keeps the orchestra, conducted by Adam Benzwi, mightily on its toes with a furious firework of fast-tempoed marches, tempestuous waltzes and incomparable chansons composed by Oscar Straus. »After just 90 minutes, one feels totally drunk on so much energy, intellect and wit.« [Berliner Morgenpost] »Dazzling. Overwhelming. Astonishing.« [Die Welt]
Text by Alfred Grünwald based on work by Louis Verneuil
