Viennese operetta by Richard Heuberger / Nordharzer Städtebundtheater
The waltz duet "Komm mit mir ins Chambre séparée" became a catchy hit in 1898. And it is precisely there, in the séparée of the Paris Opera Ball, that life and business friends Georges and Paul hope to get their money's worth. However, they have not reckoned with the shrewdness of their wives Angèle and Marguérite. And so an amorous and witty confusion unfolds.
The Austrian Richard Heuberger (1850 - 1914) was a conductor, composer and critic. A friend of Johannes Brahms and successor to the notorious music critic Eduard Hanslick at the newspaper "Neue Freie Presse", Heuberger was an influential figure in Viennese musical life. He became popular overnight with his "Opernball", which premiered in 1898. It was his first and most successful operetta creation, which was also successful internationally. The popular comedy of mistaken identities was filmed several times.
