THE SHOW

Undated, traditional or present day Bavarian costume

In the little Bavarian town of Edendorf, Karl and Sieglinde are in love. Karl, who is a young school master, writes the lyrics for Sieglinde’s father’s latest song, then he and Sieglinde go to see a music publisher. There they meet Frieda, an opera star, and her lover Bruno, who is a librettist. Bruno tries to make Sieglinde the star of his new operetta and Frieda develops an interest in Karl. However, Sieglinde fails to become a diva and she and Karl return home philosophically yet very happy.
