“Bye-Bye,” the sailors’ counterpart to the Lying Baron Münchhausen, usually ends his adventures by clearing out in the nick of time – “Bye-bye!” – leaving behind disappointed ladies and cheated crooks. He receives a rocking-chair as a 70th-brithday present, a magical apparatus with which he can once again embark on a journey in his dreams. His dream travels lead him to the scenes of his most wonderful adventures: to Zanzibar to Madame Goulou, to the devil in hell, to Shanghai, to Cairo and in the middle of the desert – and finally end at home in Blankenese. This is where the repeatedly postponed wedding is to take place, but nothing comes of it this time, either: the groom has signed on to go to sea once again. He disappears with a “Bye-bye!”
