Gipsy Love – Bühne Baden
“I am a Gypsy child”, “I hear the sound of cymbals” and “Zorika, Zorika, come back” are just a few of the rousing melodies of this romantic operetta.

Zorika’s engagement to the charming but very reputable Jonel is imminent. But she’s much more attracted to the seductive, spirited gypsy violinist Jószi, with whom she would love to abscond. At a struggle as to how she should decide, Zorika remembers the old folk belief that a girl who drinks water from the River Cerna on the night of the engagement will be able to foresee the future. She drinks from the waters and dreams of the life she can expect if she chooses Jószi. When she wakes up again, she is glad it was only a dream. She recognises her true feelings and knows where she belongs: with Jonel.
