Der Sommer der Gaukler

As the head of a traveling theater troupe, Emanuel Schikaneder not only has to produce new creative ideas time after time, but is also responsible for the financial well-being of his actors.

When he and his ensemble got stuck in a mountain village in the summer of 1780 in front of the Austrian border to wait for a game permit from Salzburg, the situation on both fronts escalated. Because both money and ideas go out Schikaneder.

Distraction from his misery finds the Impressario in the smoldering dispute between mine owner Pacolli and his workers. Here Schikaneder quickly discovers the basis for his new piece.

But not only the miners, but also Schikaneder's ensemble goes to the barricades a little later. A short-term open-air performance of the troupe leads to violent turbulences ...
