To celebrate the Christmas period, explore one of Johann Strauss the Younger’s most popular operettas. Inspired by the novel Sáffi, the story tells of Barinkay’s return from exile. He discovers that his lands are occupied by the pig farmer Zsupan. What should he do? Marry Arsena and get his lands back or allow the charm of the mysterious gypsy Sáffi to win him over? Let yourself be swept away by the waltzes, mazurkas, polkas and csárdás that delighted Viennese and Parisian audiences.
