“The Begging Student” is Carl Millöcker's greatest masterpiece and is one of the absolute world successes in operetta history.

Out of offended vanity, the arrogant Colonel Ollendorf devises a plan for revenge. Two students recruited from prison are supposed to play the main role. With that he sets it
The starting signal for one of the funniest and most passionate plots in the repertoire, because the plan to humiliate the beautiful Countess Laura goes terribly wrong. The lively, colorful hustle and bustle is embedded in world-famous songs such as “Oh, I just kissed her on the shoulder”, “I made many a tender bond” or “I have no money, I'm outlawed”.

The operetta, which premiered in 1882, gave Carl Millöcker his big breakthrough. His music bubbles with charming ideas and the audience is treated to a great operetta tradition par excellence.
