This co-production of Opera Zuid, Club Guy & Roni and FASHIONCLASH shows a different side to the French composer and cellist Jacques Offenbach. Disguised as a romantic fairy-tale, it is actually a satire about jesters and madmen, love and folly, war and dressing-up. The young student Henri (alias Fantasio) is desperate to turn his life around. When the court jester dies, Fantasio decides to take his place in the hope that Princess Elsbeth will fall for his charms.
