Traubner's book, first published in 1983, is still recognized as the key history of the people and productions that made operetta a worldwide phenomenon.

The book is written in lively prose, perfectly capturing the champagne-and-ballroom atmosphere of the greatest works in the genre. It will appeal to all fans of musical theater history.
