Operetta: a theatrical history
"This illustrated history of operetta has become the standard work on a delightful form of musical theater. Beginning in nineteenth-century Europe, Richard Traubner's volume details the creation of the genre's masterworks, from Orphee aux Enfers through Die Fledermaus, H.M.S. Pinafore, The Merry Widow, The Desert Song, and White Horse Inn; covers the careers of the major operetta composers and librettists such as Offenback, Lecocq, Gilbert and Sullivan, Lehar, Kalman, Coward, and Lerner and Loewe; and chronicles operetta's greatest theaters and most popular stars. This new edition includes additional illustrations, extensive updates, and a substantial new preface."--BOOK JACKET.
