The purpose of this document is to introduce singers, teachers, and devotees of musical theater to the prolific stage output of Hungarian composer Emmerich Kálmán (1882-1953), who ranks with Johann Strauss II and Franz Lehár as one of the most important and most-often performed among the composers of Viennese operetta. Although today relatively unknown in this country, Kálmán's operettas have been performed consistently in Europe for almost a century. Most of his twenty-two works provide excellent vehicles for both collegiate and professional companies that wish to explore the genre of operetta. Following a biography and brief analysis of his compositional style, each of his operettas will be discussed and detailed with a cast list, synopsis, and list of musical numbers (verse and refrain). The author’s hope is that readers will be able to use this document as a resource in selecting repertoire for individual students, college opera productions, and professional opera and operetta companies.
