For this operetta production, world-class tenor Piotr Beczała returned to Opernhaus Zürich as Sou-Chong. He has an equal partner in Julia Kleiter, who plays the role of Lisa. Fabio Luisi and Andreas Homoki know very well that the genre of operetta requires particular care – Thus, Homoki has transfered the plot to a 1920s Paris Variété theatre, complete with show staircase and heavy curtains. In order to emphasize the operatic elements, he condensed the piece, cutting several secondary roles and shortening dialogues.
