Imre Kálmán ranks next to Franz Lehár as one of the leading representatives of the operetta genre. The roots of the phenomenal originality of his melodies lie in his love of Hungarian gypsy music and his natural affinity for the Viennese waltz tradition, which characterize such successes as the operettas “Die Csárdásfürstin“ (1915), “Gräfin Mariza” (1924) and “Die Zirkusprinzessin” (1926).

Stage director Thomas Mittmann: ““Die Zirkusprinzessin” is a masterpiece of the Silver Era of the operetta. It became one of Kálmán’s most performed works that was also immensely successful on Broadway. The skilfully-crafted, colourful orchestral score and engaging story line give you everything needed for a relaxing evening. The music ranges from a fast polka to a slow waltz, expressing a variety of emotions – love, hate, pride, vanity, intrigue, confusion and misunderstanding, but in the end… there is conciliation.”

The plot revolves around a romantic intrigue mixed with circus sequences. The mysterious Mister X, a dashing circus performer, is hired by a disappointed suitor of Princess Fedora Palinska to pose as a nobleman and marry her. Through exiting plot twists, it is revealed that Mister X is in fact a nobleman, the disinherited nephew of a deceased prince. Thus the operetta concludes with a happy end.
