About

Dashing comedy of errors - nowadays Johann Strauss II is regarded as one of the great masters of operetta, but during his lifetime he produced one flop after another in the genre!

The première of Wiener Blut in 1899 was a disaster and the theatre actually went bankrupt! But after the initial failure of the piece, it was the Vienna flavour that ensured its lasting popularity, and by that token it was a decisive factor for the success of this 1976 production that it was conducted by an heir to the authentic Viennese Strauss tradition, namely Willi Boskovsky.
