Gräfin Mariza

After "Die Csárdásfürstin" (The Gypsy Princess), which put him in the ranks
of the most successful composers of light music, Emmerich Kálmán (1882-1953)
scored another international success with "Countess Mariza" in 1924.
The special appeal of this operetta lies in the inventiveness and profusion of its
melodic lines. An effective combination of humor and sentimentality is
reinforced by elements of Hungarian folklore, elements which give the
operetta its unforgettable charm.
