A small village in the Pannopian steppe: A young refugee's son petitions his neighbor, the wealthy pig farmer Kálmán Zsupán, for the hand of his daughter Arsena. He even fulfils the requirement for a title of nobility, since the gypsies living on his property have made him a gypsy baron. But then he falls in love with a young gypsy woman...

Gentle waltzes and fiery csárdás music on the one hand, glorification of war and racism on the other. As a play, “The Gypsy Baron” struggles in today's theater world - which, especially with regard to its composition, is a painful mistake. After several years of absence, "The Gypsy Baron" is now returning to the Vienna Volksoper in a version by the director and playwright Peter Lund.

The first performance of "The Gypsy Baron" in 1885 brought Johann Strauss the greatest stage success during his lifetime and the operetta repertoire a milestone that is still ravishing today in its musical wealth.
