Schön ist Die Welt
Schön ist Die Welt (1930) is a re-working of Lehár’s earlier one-act operetta, Endlich allein (1914). SYNOPSIS: Crown Prince Georg arrives at an alpine resort to meet his fiancee, Princess Elizabeth. However, on the way he stopped to help a girl, whose name he did not discover, mend a puncture and fell madly in love with her. He announces to his father that he will not marry Princess Elizabeth because he loves another. Everything is resolved, after a dramatic night spent by our unwitting hero and heroine on a mountain (caused by an avalanche), when Georg discovers that his heart’s desire is, in fact, Princess Elizabeth.
