This is the first time that Attila Vidnyánszky, the director of the Hungarian National Theatre, has directed an operetta performance, and the world’s most famous one at that. Following its July preview performance at the Margaret Island Open Air Theatre, Imre Kálmán’s immortal masterpiece, the Csárdásfürstin, will join the repertoire of the Operetta Theatre from September 2019. This particularly lavish production of the oft-reconfigured play is based on the first Hungarian version produced by Andor Gábor in 1916. With its bohemian characters among the high nobility, its complicated plot involving matters of the heart and compelling melodies, the piece has become a memorial to light-heartedness itself; while the dark clouds heralding the dissolution of old Hungary and of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy also appear on the horizon.
