Leo Fall, once a dazzling composer of operettas such as “The Dollar Princess”, “The Merry Farmer”, “The Rose of Stambul” and “Madame Pompadour” talks about his crazy life. In a fi ctitious discussion he refl ects on his unbelievable wealth, as well as his extravagance and compulsive gambling. He remembers his triumphs in Vienna, Berlin, London, New York and Buenos Aires, and offers deep insights into his private life that included an illegitimate daughter, his legal incapacitation and a cocaine-addicted wife who was unable to cope with life. Alongside his competitors, Lehár and Kálmán, Leo Fall was above all the most important composer of operettas at the heart of the thrilling intellectual and cultural life of early 20th century Vienna.
