Short Synopsis

Set in the colourful milieu of Bavaria, this is a story of two young lovers - Trudie, the village postmistress, and Adam, a handsome bird seller from the Tyrol - who, at cross-purposes, become embroiled in romantic complications at the Court of the reigning Prince. The highly entertaining intrigues and misunderstandings - involving quite a number of distinctive characters - are eventually sorted out to the accompaniment of some of Zeller’s brightest and most liltingly-tuneful music.
