Strauss' Viennese waltz worth the return

Rockdale Opera Company proudly presents the hilarious The Gypsy Baron at Rockdale Town Hall for a limited run of four performances this November.

With music by Johann Strauss and Libretto by Ignaz Schnitzer, The Gypsy Baron tells the story of the marriage of a nobleman (returned from exile), a beautiful gypsy girl who is revealed as the daughter of a Turkish Pasha and the hunt for hidden treasure!

It involves larger than life and colourful characters including a fortune-telling Romany queen, a self-serving pig farmer, a self-important mayor, a rascally commissioner, a band of gypsies, as well as star-crossed lovers.

Since its premiere in 1885 this has remained one of the most popular of all Viennese operettas. It brims with beautiful waltzes, stirring marches and joyous polkas by the celebrated Waltz King.

Rockdale Opera Company has attracted an experienced production team and excellent cast for this production.

Musical Director is Kohki Iwasaki and Director David Brennan leads a superb cast of talent.

Featuring Strauss' iconic Viennese Waltz and exquisite casting, this production is ensures a wonderful night out.
