An ambitious local politician is persuaded by a shady billionaire to help his city - and perhaps himself - achieve new greatness by building a spaceport. But Gabriel von Eisenstein actually has other problems: For disorderly conduct he is due to start serving a prison sentence tomorrow. But why face reality? Eisenstein prefers to follow the advice of his friend Dr. Falke to have a good time before starting his prison sentence - and thus falls into the net of an intrigue in which not only an honourable personality has to lose his reputation.
A large ensemble of singers, dancers and actors brings this intergalactic operetta fun to the stage of the Düsseldorf Opera House.
