Count of Luxemburg | Musical

  • About the Show

    or half a million francs, a penniless Count agrees to marry - and in three month's time divorce - a girl unknown to him, so that, as a Countess, she can become the bride of a Grand Duke. At the wedding ceremony, the pair are separated by a screen - but later they meet and fall in love. Little knowing they are already husband and wife, they believe their romance is hopeless - but a happy ending is beautifully worked out, and the unfolding of the story is greatly enriched by Lehár 's lilting music, which includes two immortal waltzes. Additionally, a ballet to the celebrated "Gold and Silver Waltz" can be included.
