The operetta was thoroughly and well prepared. It is a comic work with original and clever motifs and entertaining and humorous music, little plot yet many funny scenes. [Summary of plot follows] The performance was excellent. Everybody gave their best to contribute to the whole of the show, although individual performances were not always flawless. L’Arronge as the ‘father’ was amusing throughout the entire show. Hübsch, Steglich, Irschick, Schmitz, Hoym, and the rest of the ten [girls] supported him perfectly. The audience was large and enthusiastic during the show. The farce before the operetta was very well performed by L’Arronge and also Klein as ‘the English man’, the latter has improved much in his acting.
