10 Mädchen und kein Mann! A homage to Franz von Suppé
con fuoco at MuTh - Debut concert by the “con fuoco” chamber orchestra

A gold rush at MuTh!

The con fuoco chamber orchestra and Svetoslav Borisov have started to mine for gold among Vienna’s long-forgotten operettas. Here they demonstrate Suppé’s ability to synthesise different elements in his instrumentations and arrangements. These were a big success in 1860, when Viennese operetta was born at the Theater an der Wien. In his one-act piece “Das Pensionat” (The Boarding School), Franz von Suppé married French esprit, Viennese burlesque and the flavours of Italy. He provided Vienna’s response to the Parisian discovery of Cologne-born composer Jacques Offenbach. You can expect a colourful, charming merry-go-round of little-known overtures, character pieces and rare treasures from the very earliest days of Viennese operetta!
