Description: Premiered in Vienna in December of 1921, Kalman’s operetta brings together Hungarian folk melodies and the Viennese waltz, displays operatic and melodramatic elements, and illustrates the American dance rhythms of its times. In addition, it offers exotic tone colors like those of the Hungarian tarogato and specific rhythms designed to satisfy the longing for faraway India. 2 CDs. No libretto.
