This comical opera by Jacques Offenbach bubbles like a glass of champagne. With infectious music, hilarious person exchanges, jokes and grolls as only this French master could. The young student Fantasio hopes to conquer the heart of the Bavarian princess Elsbeth and expresses herself as her deceased fool. The arranged marriage with the Prince of Mantua, which must restore peace, is abruptly canceled when Fantasio deliberately ridicules the bridegroom publicly. After a series of complications and confusions, love prevails and peace can be sealed - even without marriage. Opera Zuid performs this unknown musical masterpiece by Offenbach.
