Review: New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung und Herold, 08 November 1867, 8.

The new operetta by Offenbach, Die Verlobung bei der Laterne is another jewel out of Offenbach’s treasure box. Light and attractive melodies, not always completely new but well “renovated”, and a subtle, intelligent and rich instrumentation make this work interesting and appealing. The finale quartet with chorus is one of the most beautiful pieces. The performance was quite good. Mrs. L’Arronge-Sury showed another aspect of her versatility in the role of “Anne-Marie”. The “Zankduett” was performed so well by L’Arronge and Miss Hoffner, an encore was requested by the audience….The last operetta Zehn Mädchen has still not worn out the audience’s interest, as the booked theater proved.

Review: New-Yorker Musik-Zeitung, 09 November 1867, 218.

The only novelty performed last week was the operetta Die Verlobung bei der Laterne [Le Mariage aux Lanternes] by Offenbach. The music is well-known and this makes it very attractive. Mrs. L’Arronge-Sury sang her part with the usual mastery; her performance of the ‘Trinklied’ was fiery. The audience was large, yet not as large as expected.
