Operetta & Musical Highlights
Over the last 19 years operetta and musical concerts have regularly featured in the Classic Open Air Programme.
But what is actually the difference between an operetta and a musical, and can one be considered more popular? Star soprano Anna-Maria Kaufmann (her awards include three platinum discs for her performance in The Phantom of the Opera) will be taking an entertaining and amusing look at this question. As the evening’s hostess, she assumes the double role of “Madame Operetta” and “Miss Musical”. The Ensemble der Musikalischen Komödie, from Leipzig, will help members of the audience to make their own choice with exquisitely staged scenes from operettas such as The Gypsy Baron (Johann Strauß), Kalman’s The Riviera Girl and popular musicals such as My Fair Lady and Mein Freund Bunbury (Natschinski).
