In 1915 the Hungarian composer Emmerich Kálmán celebrated what certainly
qualifies as his greatest pubic success in the operetta metropolis of
Vienna with Die Csárdásfürstin. For his next operetta, which beheld the
light of the stage world at the Johann Strauß Theater in Vienna on 21
September 1917, Kálmán and his librettists Alfred Maria Willner and Rudolf
Österreicher drew on a work that had already been presented with success in
Budapest and had even conquered New York’s Broadway: it was thus that
Zsuzsi kisasszony (Miss Susi) or Miss Springtime (Fräulein Frühling) became
Die Faschingsfee (The Carnival Fairy) for the Viennese public of the war
years. For it the three authors came up with a plot that is set in Munich
during the Carnival season and in the twilight years of the monarchies in
Bavaria and Austria-Hungary issued its appeal for the elimination of social
strictures and the guarantee of the right to follow one’s own heart. While
Die Faschingsfee was redesigned as a most highly successful star vehicle
for Fritzi Massary in Berlin, the same work – with hits like »Heut’ flieg
ich aus,« »Liebling, du mein Liebling,« and »Lieber Himmelvater, sei nicht
bös« on the same high musical level as Die Csárdásfürstin – celebrated its
Munich premiere in 1918 at the Gärtnerplatztheater and during subsequent
years scored triumphs around the world. On the occasion of its hundredth
anniversary, the theater director Josef E. Köpplinger and his team rescued
this fun Carnival work from decades of neglect and revived it right on time
for the Munich Carnival in 2017!
