Operetta by Ralph Benatzky / Libretto by Robert Blum and Ralph Benatzky Based on a comedy by Georges Berr and Louis Verneuil

A divorce case in court in 1930: Dr. Roger Fleuriot and Dolly, Princess of Saint-Labiche, argue with insurmountable dislike, but cannot convince the judge with it and are asked by him to lay out their whole story. Roger has been working as a palace librarian for Dolly in Paris. Despite mutual affection, a relationship does not materialize because of Roger's excessive shyness. When he wants to leave Paris to take up a teaching position at the university in Nancy, Dolly tells him a tall tale: she has a sister in Nancy who is impoverished and therefore works there as a shoe saleswoman. Dolly quickly hands Roger a ring and a letter, which he is supposed to bring to the sister, and then the two separate. In Nancy, Roger falls head over heels in love with the supposed sister of the princess, without realizing that in reality it is none other than Dolly herself, who has slipped into this role. Why he can only love her as a shoe saleswoman, but not as an independent and rich woman - that is the clou of Ralph Benatzky's turbulent, lively chamber operetta, which is presented in the Kleine Komödie Warnemünde by only two actors in all roles.
