There are few operettas that fit better into the Pannonian ambience of Lake Neusiedl than Emmerich Kalman's "Gräfin Mariza" (Countess Mariza). This year the Seefestspiele Mörbisch attract with this long-running hit. It is staged by Berlin director Winfried Bauernfeind, who has proven his lucky hand in Mörbisch with "Land des Lächelns" (Land of Smiles). The musical direction lies in the proven hands of Rudolf Bibl. Rolf Langenfass is again responsible for the stage design.
