A new English performance of Kálmán's delightful opera.

The Ohio Light Opera performs Emmerich Kálmán’s delightful three-act operetta in a new English performance. Written by Kálmán in 1915 and called Miss Susie, producers from Broadway secured the first international rights. In 1916, with English lyrics by novelist P.G. Wodehouse, the show opened at the New Amsterdam Theater as Miss Springtime and ran for 227 performances. Spurred by this success, Kálmán sought a German language libretto to adapt Miss Susie for Vienna, where it opened in 1917 and was called The Carnival Fairy. Subsequently mounted in Berlin with significant rewrites by Kálmán, this version in a new English translation is the one used for the Ohio Light Opera production.

“[Ohio Light Opera], a true ensemble company, again strikes fire in this recording. There is an excitement to the performance… There are strong performances from Sperry and Knox with Byers guiding the orchestra into a shipshape performance.” (American Record Guide)
