Richard Genée is known today mainly as the librettist of several successful Viennese operettas, most notably Die Fledermaus. However he was a reasonably successful composer, too. The Naval Cadet only had a modest reception when it opened at the Globe Theatre in London, but this touring production, a few months later, seems to have been highly popular.
