What is a Tyrolean bird seller doing in the Palatinate region? Carl Zeller has provided the answer in a theatrically effective manner since 1891. This was the year when his operetta classic premiered, with its chock-a-block full of catchy musical numbers such as “Ich bin die Christel von der Post“ (I’m Christel from the Post), “Schenkt man sich Rosen in Tirol” (Do you give roses in Tyrol?), or “Wie mein Ahnl zwanzig Jahr” (When my ‘Ahnl” was twenty). Once again this year the operetta specialist, Karl Absenger, who recently directed the productions of The White Horse Inn and A Night in Venice, will be the director of this staging.
