The operetta was created in the 1950s, when Zeltingen-Rachtig launched a song contest. The council demanded to sing about the well-known vineyard "Zeltinger Himmelreich". The victorious composer Werner Stamm spend his holiday in Zeltingen-Rachtig - and he liked it so much that he wrote an entire operetta about winegrowers' life and an almost true event at the end of the 18th century. In 1955 the premiere took place and in the meantime 5 performances are given every two years. The authentic open-air theatre takes place on the market square of Zeltingen.

Friday, July19th and 26th 2019
