Sebastian Anton Maria Brummer

Singer, actor, writer and director

Whether in “The Magic Flute” on tour with the Teatro alla Scala di Milano or in a Lieder and Operetta Evening at Carnegie Hall – actor and singer Sebastian A. M. Brummer fascinates with his variability and brings stories to life as a director and author, too.

Sarah Sophia Meyer


From engagements at theatres to film productions – the Swiss actress Sarah Sophia Meyer has already been able to demonstrate her skills in the most diverse branches of acting. All the more joyous, that she has been a permanent ensemble member of the Graz Schauspielhaus since 2015.

Werner Haindl

Reinhard Summerer

1400 works, which can be found on over 100 recordings, have already been penned by the composer and arranger Reinhard Summerer. As a composer, he is dedicated to various post- modern styles, and as a trombonist he is one of the most universal musicians of our time.


the operetta as a pot pourri revue

The relationship between German tourists and their Austrian hosts is a cliché pure and simple: it is enormous fun to watch as communication completely breaks down between the well-to-do, pompous “Piefke”, who has no idea what is going on, and the scoundrels in the hotel business, as charming as they are self-centred. Benatzky’s “White Horse Inn“ is the mother of all comedies about the culture clash between Germans and Austrians, with all-time hits like “Was kann der Sigismund dafür, dass er so schön ist“. All-rounder Sandy Lopicic stages the operetta as a pot pourri revue.
