Wiener Blut - Viennese Blood - Operetta by Johann Strauß
TO THE PIECE
After a one-year break, the "South Tyrolean Operetta Games" will be back with a work by Johann Strauss. Who does not know "Wiener Blut", one of his most elegant and memorable melodies, which runs like a red thread through the plot of this last operetta by the Waltz King. On behalf of and in cooperation with the already quite old-fashioned master, the theater conductor Adolf Müller selected well-known and effective melodies from Strauss's pen and thus created this work, for which the librettists Victor Léon and Leo Stein a funny plot about the amorous escapades of one Counts at the time of the Congress of Vienna. These two lyricists, of all people, were to write the libretto for the "Merry Widow" a few years later, which ushered in a new era of operettas. Like many a masterpiece, "Wiener Blut" was not a success when it premiered in 1899; this did not occur until a few years later and since then the piece has been played around the world as one of the most "Viennese" operettas; The waltz of the same name is no less well known.
The plot of this operetta resembles the Viennese farce in its drastic wit and irony with which the authorities are portrayed here; at the same time, there is hardly any other operetta that expresses the beauty and elegance of Strauss' melodies so much. It is surely this mixture that gives this musical comedy its extraordinary charm. The operetta "Wiener Blut" by Johann Strauss Sohn will be presented as part of the 13th Südt. The operetta plays will premiere on Saturday, December 4th, 2021 in the Forum Brixen. Further performances will follow until December 30th. Director Leo Ploner is convinced that the elegant music by Johann Strauss and the amusing plot will delight the audience.
