The horse of the rich idler Fadinard has eaten Madame Beauperthuis' Florentine hat. Not too bad? Very bad! Because when Madame comes home without her hat, her jealous husband finds out about her secret flirtation with an officer. So, on the day of his wedding, of all days, Fadinard races all over Paris in search of a replacement hat.
Herbert Fritsch stages Eugène Labiche's classic “The Italian Straw Hat” as a fast-paced comedy. The German pop singer Herbert Grönemeyer returns to his roots as a theater musician and has composed a musical theater for an ensemble of actors and opera singers, choir, and orchestra. This musical comedy will be performed in German with English surtitles.
Tickets are CHF 30-130 for adults and CHF 20 for youths up to age 16 and students up to age 30.
