Festival operetta "Viktoria und ihr Husar" by Paul Abraham
Escaping from Russian captivity, Hussar riding master Stefan Koltay accidentally meets his beloved Viktoria again in Tokyo. Viktoria, whom Koltay thought was dead, has meanwhile become the wife of the American envoy Cunlight, who is to be transferred to St. Petersburg. - In Petersburg, Viktoria avoids all contact with Koltay, as she still has deep feelings for her hussar. Koltay, who has taken the great risk of following Viktoria to Russia, is recognized and arrested. Koltay refuses any help from Cunlight. In the end, however, it is the noble-minded Cunlight who makes it possible for Viktoria and her hussar to find each other after all.
With a mixture of exoticism, Hungarian color, the emerging jazz and the fashionable dances of the time, Paul Abraham succeeded in reviving the genre with his master operetta "Viktoria und ihr Husar" without losing sight of its long tradition. Hits like "Mausi, süß warst du heute Nacht" and"Reich' mir zum Abschied noch einmal die Hände" were all hits of the season and went around the world.
