About the event
La Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein was a summit in Jacques Offenbach’s career. Some of his most lively music and a wonderfully ridiculous plot enliven this tale of the monarch of a small European country whose ministers decide to go to war in order to keep her entertained.
Sung in the original French, partly in Dutch; spoken dialogue in a modern and comical English. The entire show is also surtitled in French, Dutch and English. The operatta has been painstakingly orchestrated and will be performed by a live orchestra directed by Steven De Mesmaeker.
