King Waldemar reigns Sinfonia and he loves only written notes and dislikes folk improvisation and “wild” songs. His beautiful daughter, Princess Verle, is supposed to marry Pjotr, a stark and stiff Earl. But what will be, will be: jewish musicians, called Klezmorim, the trio around Naftule, play at the marriage. Unfortunately Naftule and Verle fall in love with each other… that causes lots of trouble! But as it is in fary tales: everything turns out allright!
