(Kálmán: Die Csárdásfürstin). Spoken roles. The parents of Prince Edwin Ronald. They want him to marry his cousin, the Countess Anastasia (Stasi) and are opposed to his love for a cabaret singer. But it becomes known that Edwin's mother was herself a singer before her marriage, so the parents’ objections are overruled. Created (1915) by Max Brod and Gusti Macha.
