"Very surprised and overwhelmed"
On Thursday evening, at the premiere of this year's operetta production at Mörbisch, Harald Serafin, from 1992 to 2012 director of the festival, was awarded an honorary membership of the Festival by his successor Dagmar Schellenberger. Serafin expressed that he was "very surprised and overwhelmed".
The former Mörbisch director made an attempt to grab a microphone and make a long speech -- to lots of laughs from the audience - as in his heyday as festival director. Schellenberger in turn hoped with a wink that he accepted the award anyhow.
