THE HUNGARIAN OPERETTA AND ITS REPRESENTATIVES The history of the Hungarian operetta started with Western influence. After much foreign success, the works of Strauss, Zeller, Millöcker, and Offenbach formed to the public in Hungary, too. Later on, talented Hungarian conductors and the translators of libretti were determined to start to experiment with Hungarian operettas, too. As a result, the 1st Hungarian piece of the genre, The Living Devil (Az eleven ördög) by Antal Deréky and József Konti, was put onto stage in 1885 in the Népszínház.

The performed piece was so successful that there was no halt after that. There came the latest novelties from aspiring Hungarian composers.

The new genre has become internationally recognised, too, in the following years. This was the time when the charm of the prima donna, Lujza Blaha, also contributed to the popularization of the genre. She was the 1st notable star of the Hungarian operetta with her performance in The Living Devil (Az eleven ördög) and The Stripling (Suhanc). She became famous in Vienna as well, but she refused a contract with Carltheater because she wanted to rest a Hungarian actress.

And do you know what the Hungarian operetta is notable for? It is mostly for the fact that it is catchy and easy to memorize, but at the same time, it is carefully constructed like an opera.

The Hungarian operetta has not disappeared in todays society either, although the fame of it might have faded a bit.
