Der Besuch der alten Dame

Nikolaus Leytner
The impoverished town of Güllen is turned upside down after the factory closes. The arrival of a former resident, who amassed a considerable fortune in “the big, wide world,” is expected, and everybody hopes that multibillionaire Claire Zachanassian will do something for her former home. However, they forget how they treated Klara as a girl, and Claire wants revenge for this past injustice.
