Commentaires longs: Although the music by Offenbach and the ballet sequences featuring Pauline Grant were much praised, it was generally felt the book was lacking in wit and humour, the lyrics were undistinguished and the whole show pleasant and nothing more. This was the 100th production by director William Mollison, and featured his brother, Clifford, in a leading role. It had a short run of just over two months, finishing on July 8th.
