Leo Fall (1873-1925)
Operetta in three acts.
Libretto: Alfred Maria Willner, Fritz Grünbaum
Dialogue version: Ralf Eger


It was a waltz that led to the success of Die Dollarprinzessin, not only in
America (where the action is set) but also around the globe. Nevertheless,
during its Broadway debut the usual inserts by American composers were an
absolute must, including the hornpipe quintet »A Boat Sails on Wednesday«
by Jerome Kern, who until then was largely unknown. Although the New York
Times found »this burlesque Apache dance« to be »very amusing,« it
nevertheless emphasized that »Dr. Fall’s music nonetheless is situated high
above such trivialities.« The libretto was written by the authorial team
formed by Alfred Maria Willner and Fritz Grünbaum. The main subject of the
action: the refusal of an impoverished but proud man to let himself be
bought by a woman who is just as proud but rich. The premiere on 2 November
1907 at the Theater an der Wien was loudly applauded, but the Berlin
performance on 6 June 1908 became a triumph. When the five hundredth
performance then was celebrated in 1909, Die Dollarprinzessin had already
conquered London and New York. The 428 London performances paved the way
for The Dollar Princess throughout all the colonies of the British Empire
and opened the door taking it to the countries of the Romance languages,
especially in South America, where La Princesa de los Dólares continues to
belong to the repertoire even today!
