Overview

Cecil Clarke's adaptation for television has been used as the basis for the current revised version. While retaining all the well-known musical numbers, it allows a more fluid production, no longer dependent on major scene changes, and, by omitting scenes incidental to the main plot, has concentrated on the central love story between penniless, unknown composer, Rudi Kleber, who leaps to fame in Vienna of 1911, and the operetta star who first befriends him, Maria Ziegler.

The Scenes
SS headquarters in Vienna, a beer garden, Maria's drawing room, the Theater an der Wein, a schloss garden, the Gala Locher's restaurant.
Staging for this adapted version has been greatly simplified and the seats very much left to the individual director and the resources available.
