Abu Hassan

Musical after a fairy tale from "Thousand and One Nights"
by Carl Maria von Weber

About Abu Hassan

"Thousand and One Nights" in Eutin! The highly indebted court official Abu Hassan has a cunning plan: he wants to pretend his death in order to escape the creditors - and the caliph has to pay for a funeral befitting his rank. But Abu Hassan didn't expect his wife to have a secret admirer who would like to have his say ...

For the first time in 45 years Carl Maria von Weber's one-act work will be performed again at the festival and in Lübeck - and in addition as a local production: the orchestra and ensemble are made up of students from the Lübeck University of Music, with young people from Eutin and the surrounding area singing in the choir.

Nota bene: Weber has set himself a monument in the figure of Abu Hassan. His family was heavily indebted and imprisoned, later expelled from Württemberg. With the success of "Abu Hassan" he was not only able to pay off the family debts, but also to appease the Grand Duke...
