Every second year, the village theatre company in Beinwil am See AG stages an operetta – since 1864. However, the tradition is in danger: due to lack of audience, the financial resources of the theatre company are almost gone. In the three-part documentary “A Village Stages an Operetta” Swiss television shows the joys and pains of a Swiss village whilst staging an operetta – from the first rehearsal to opening night.


Produced in 2010.
