Near the Elbe Wrapped in Fog
Karl was a ship hand, who has decided to return to his hometown of Hamburg. There on the night of the yearly beer festival, he meets Margaret, who tells him she has left her family home in search of freedom. They spend the night in a hotel, and fall in love. Not wanting to part, Karl proposes to Margaret and the two rent an apartment together.
In truth, Margaret is the daughter of a prominent Hamburg family, and is engaged to a man named Florian. When her family comes in search of her, Margaret vows to only return with Karl by her side. Surrounded by these disapproving people, Karl soon finds himself adrift because of his rough speech and manners, and Margaret herself starts to feel ashamed of him. While she is wavering, Florian gently remonstrates with her.
Karl also sees how Margaret feels. Although they love each other, they are pained by their distancing feelings. Karl resolves to leave Margaret for her own good. He takes money offered to him by Margaret's father Joseph, then throws painful, abusive language at Margaret as he leaves. Margaret despairs, but then Florian admonishes her that Karl must have used those words thinking it was for her own good. So Margaret goes after Karl. Karl is at the harbour at his usual watering hole, waiting to depart once more on his ship that evening, and he asks someone to return the money to Margaret for him when his ship leaves.
The sound of a departing ships horn rings out in the fog. Karl sets out to sea once more alone, thinking only of Margaret....
Estrellas means "stars" in Spanish. This has a theme of "giving a light like that of the stars," since it is for Star Troupe, which gives the sparkle of all the stars in the heavens to people's hearts. This is a work which will allow the stars of Star Troupe to showcase their energetic singing voices and dance overflowing with liveliness.
- This is the 5th production of "Near the Elbe Wrapped in Fog", which was first performed by Moon Troupe in 1963. Previous to this performance it was revived most recently in 1983 by Flower Troupe.
- The final performance for Nanami Hiroki, Seki Yurito, Katori Reira, and Amakake Sakura.
