by Oscar Straus
Oscar Straus’ first attempt at a Viennese operetta, after several operas and burlesques, brought him international renown.
The young Jacobson presented Straus with a libretto for A Waltz Dream at a coffee house in 1906. Straus was inspired by the text and completed the work within 12 months for its Viennese premiere in spring 1907. The international success of the operetta exceeded Straus’s expectations, and special praise was reserved for the famous waltz theme from Act Two. This superb triumph led to his Chocolate Soldier two years later and the rest, as they say, was history.
