La Périchole, a masterwork by Jacques Offenbach directed by Nikolaus Habjan, is just the ticket to start the new year on a humorous note! This operetta has everything we know and love about Offenbach. It is entertainment at the highest level, taking a quizzically ironic view of politics and culture.
Nikolaus Habjan presents the piece in an effortlessly contemporary version – without any hint of heavy-handedness. Multi-talent Habjan strives to tell the story as it is notated in the score. An avid music-lover, he delves into the story one hundred percent – and manages to touch us profoundly.
The permiere takes place on January 16th at the Musiktheater an der Wien and runs through January 31st. – Get your tickets now!
