In the organizer's words:
Curtain up for: Dagmar Manzel and Max Hopp! She plays: Manon Cavallini, operetta diva, her suitor Raoul Severac, and the father of Lucy, her daughter - he plays: that very Lucy as well as all five of the Cavallini's lovers and Lucy's housemate to boot! In all other roles: Dagmar Manzel and Max Hopp! A breathless tour de force, in which the orchestra under Adam Benzwi heats up with a firework of marches, waltzes and chansons from the pen of Oscar Straus.glamour queen Manon Cavallini is an operetta diva idolized by all men. Raoul Severac has also succumbed to her - much to the displeasure of young Lucy, who has fallen head over heels in love with the dapper bachelor. She therefore asks the stage star to renounce Raoul and leave him to her. What she doesn't know: Manon is her mother ...

With A Woman Who Knows What She Wants! Oscar Straus, one of the most successful operetta composers of the 1920s and 30s, created a masterpiece. In its wild mixture of waltz and foxtrot, it embodies the operetta style of the Weimar Republic. With hits such as "Why shouldn't a woman have an affair" and "Every woman has a longing of some kind," Straus cheekily overturned role clichés that had prevailed until then.
