Countess Maritza

The Opera Theatre
(Her Majesty's Theatre)

28 Nov - 14 Dec 1985
Season Closed

Tassilo, the new bailiff on Countess Maritza’s estate, is an impoverished young Baron who has taken the job incognito to pay for his sister’s education. Temperament and pride delay the inevitable happy pairing-off of Maritza with Tassilo, and his sister Lisa with another nobleman from Maritza’s set of friends. Manja, the fortune-telling gipsy, typifies the strong Magyar flavour of the attractive score which features such well-known songs as “Play Gypsy”
