On January 22nd, La Périchole was awarded with the "BR-Klassik-Frosch" in the programme "Operetten-Boulevard" on BR-KLASSIK.

The BR-KLASSIK team congratulates the management team around the great director Nikolaus Habjan and the entire ensemble for operetta courage and a lively new interpretation of this rarely performed operetta. Congratulations for the excellent cast with Anna Lucia Richter and David Fischer and the great actors and actresses, also on the original text version, as well as the musical realisation under the direction of Jordan de Souza.


Since the beginning of 2016, the jury of the BR-KLASSIK operetta editorial team has been awarding outstanding productions of the genre and thus also nominating them for the "Spielzeit-Frosch".


The "BR-Klassik-Frosch" is intended to show: It is worthwhile to present operetta in such a way that its subversiveness, wit and esprit are shown to advantage. It is also worthwhile to believe in the audience's mental agility - and not to slacken in the efforts to stimulate it!
