“It is probably the finest and most delightful music that Lehár has written to date,” said one critic at the premiere of the operetta “The Stargazer” in 1916.
Nevertheless, the operetta fell into oblivion and can hardly be found on the repertoire today.

In addition to Lehár's musical genius, the piece has a typically cheerful, romantic plot: four young ladies from noble society are looking for happiness in love. However, a reluctantly engaged architect, a jealous brother and, at the same time, an odd astronaut get involved and allow this endeavor to degenerate into exuberant chaos...

The Lehár Festival Bad Ischl presents this long-hidden musical treasure to you semi-staged and with a top-class cast.

The THEATRE HALL offers an unusual and elegant setting with professional infrastructure for conventions, presentations, galas and cultural performances.
Here, what appears to be impossible is made possible. The technical equipment of the hall knows no boundaries, but opens up new perspectives for each event. Depending on the way in which the seats are arranged, it can accomodate up to 900 guests.
The available light and sound techniques meet the highest demands. The stage with its sinkable orchestra pit keeps all possibilities open and offers a flexible use of the room. Loading lines are kept short via the back-stage. The hall itself is representatively and stylishly decorated. Steps in the second half of the hall guarantee an open view to the stage.
