Maybe things are just a little too comfortable for Fritz. Plenty of money. Teams of people working for him. Even a violinist whose tunes always cheer him up. He is convinced that marriage is not for him. Suzel would like to change his mind, but Fritz won’t get the hint. Could it be time for the local rabbi to step in and help things along?

L’amico Fritz is a feel-good romantic comedy set amidst cherry orchards and vineyards by the composer of Cavalleria rusticana, showing us his gentler side and reminding us what friends are for.
