'The Gypsy Princess' is widely regarded as Emmerich Kálmán’s best work.

Widely regarded as Emmerich Kálmán’s best work, “The Gypsy Princess” is the story of revue star Sylva Varescu, who loves Edwin, son of a princely Viennese family, but is aware that Edwin is forbidden by his family to marry her due to their differences in social standing.

The role of Sylva Varescu will be performed by ensemble member Nataliya Kovalova, and her lover Edwin by Bernhard Berchthold, guest star at German Opera on the Rhine. Other cast members include Aïsha Tümmler as Countess Stasi, Cornel Frey as her partner Boni, and Bruno Balmelli as Feri Bácsi. Opera house conductor Lukas Beikircher will be musical director.
