With his operetta The Gypsy Princess, the Hungarian composer Emmerich Kálmán earned himself a permanent place among the leading composers of this genre. The premiere in Vienna in 1915 was followed by a further 500 performances. The central theme of the story, set in the Budapest and Vienna of the early twentieth century, is the forbidden love between a famous cabaret singer called Sylva and the young Prince Edwin, whose parents have arranged a match with Countess Stasi. The young sweethearts’ burning passion gains an increasing number of supporters and in the end love triumphs over differences of rank. The passionate melodies of the popular arias and ensembles, spiced up with some authentic Hungarian csárdás, have enchanted audiences the world over, not only in theatres but also on the cinema screen. This time they will ring out under the guidance of conductor Veseljko Barešić and director Ivan Leo Lemo from Croatia, performed by the combined strength of the Ljubljana Opera ensemble and Zagreb’s Komedija Theatre.
