Franz von Suppé

The Croatian composer we didn’t know we loved! Explore the life and work of Split born composer Franz von Suppé. Once regarded as the godfather of Viennese operetta, now only a few of his ouvertures feature mainly in classical pop concerts. However, during his lifetime his 40 or so operettas bridged the gap between the satirical works of Offenbach and the musical romances of Lehár.
