Printed caption (in German, translated): "The Stage: In reminiscence of the autograph session at the exhibition "Vienna and the Viennese" on Friday evening, June 10th, 1927." Franz Lehár (1870-1948) was a major figure in the revival of Viennese light opera at the beginning of the 20th century. His The Merry Widow (1905) popularized operetta in the U.S. and also became Hitler's favorite stage work. During the 1920s, Lehár incorporated new styles of popular music, including American blues, into his compositions, and began composing film scores. His operetta, Land of Smiles, premiered in London in 1931, Giuditta premiered at the Vienna Opera House in 1934. Lehár, despite having a Jewish wife, remained in Vienna during World War II, conducting the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra in 1942. Lightly worn. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through).
