About this Item

5 pp. Small Fo. A parodic version of Dickens's "Dolly Varden", as invented by him, in a turn of the 20th century popular comic opera. Among publisher's ads on back cover is a listing of the various songs published separately for this "Dainty Comic Opera É as produced by the Lulu Glaser Opera Co.". There were Broadway productions of this opera from 1902 to 1903. Hugh "Stanislaus Strange (1862Ð1917), librettist and lyricist. Born in Liverpool, he came to America in 1881 and embarked on a career of acting and playwriting. His biggest success was his dramatization of the novel 'Quo Vadis' (1900). However, Stange was most in demand as a lyricist and librettist, working often with Julian Edwards. At least eighteen of his musicals reached New York, among them 'Madeleine' (1895), Brian Boru (1896) 'The Wedding Day' (1897), 'The Jolly Musketeer" (1898), and his best work, 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home' (1902). he enjoyed his longest run with his adaptation of Oscar Straus's Viennese favorite, 'The Chocolate Soldier' (1909), which he also directed" (Answers. Com). Julian Edwards (1855Ð1910) was an English composer; he studied with Oakeley and Macfarren and was Kappelmeister at Londoner Covent Garden Opera and was "conductor of the Carl Rosa Opera Company. In 1888 James C. Duff brought him to New York and produced his first show to reach Broadway, Jupiter (1892). Between that premiere and his death eighteen years later he wrote the scores for seventeen New York musicals. Among the best received or more interesting were King René's Daughter (1893), Madeleine (1895), The Goddess of Truth (1896), The Wedding Day (1897), The Jolly Musketeer (1898), Princess Chic (1900), Dolly Varden (1902), When Johnny Comes Marching Home (1902), Love's Lottery (1904), and The Girl and the Wizard (1909). Although none of his music remains popular, he was highly respected in his own time, and his work was sufficiently admired to lure such stars as Lillian Russell, Jefferson De Angelis, Della Fox, Christie MacDonald, and Lulu Glaser." (Answers.com) He died in New York. A very uncommon bit of Dickensiana. Printed and decorated paper wraps. Bookseller Inventory # 10879
