The operetta "Eine Nacht in Venedig" (A Night in Venice) was premiered in
Berlin on 2 October 1883; barely a week later the Viennese were also able
to celebrate the triumph of a new work by the "Waltz King." The music of
this comic opera perfectly matches the merry, carefree mood of the action.
Melodies such as "Komm in die Gondel," "Ach, wie so herrlich zu schau'n"
and "Kommt, kommt, ihr holden Frauen!" are among the high points of the
operetta. The stellar cast includes such eminent singers as Anton de
Ridder, Sylvia Geszty, Trudeliese Schmidt and, as Ciboletta, Julia Migenes.
