Based on Molière's classic and German TV-Shows of the 90ies such as "Schwarzwaldklinik" and "Traumschiff", this modern doctor satire was created. Since his early retirement, the well-off Axel has developed a considerable hypochondria. He therefore goes on endless spa visits to various posh accommodations, currently to the Kurhotel St. Moritz.
This benefits not least his second wife Melitta, who is not averse to luxury.
3f/4m with an optional choir or ensemble
