Dramatic script for act I and act II of the operetta. As the leading comedian, Ludwig prepares to marry the soubrette, Lisa. His company achieves an opportunity to act on their conspiracy to overthrow the Grand Duke of Pfennig-Halbfennig, and Ludwig becomes the Grand Duke. Unfortunately, several other women have a prior claim on the Grand Duke's hand in marriage.
This operetta was the duo's final collaboration, and was first performed in 1896, ending an often-quarrelsome partnership encompassing a quarter of a century and 14 comic operas.
