Appendix 1: Messter-Biophon-Filmbegleitplatte

At the Berlin première, Albert Kutzner sang Camille and Gustav Matzner Danilo. In subsequent performances, the two singers alternated as Danilo, while Fred Carlo doubled as Camille. The present record is the only known excerpt of Camille's part recorded by Kutzner. It was produced to accompany a "Messter Biophon" film of the scene, which is alas not known to survive today. Several other numbers with Matzner and Ottmann were also filmed at the time, but apparently none of the pictorial elements have survived.

Appendix 3: Highlights from Eric Charell's 1928 Metropol-Theater production

For this elaborate "updated" version featuring Fritzi Massary, already a living legend at the time, much of the text - both story and lyrics - was re-written by Rudolf Schanzer and Ernst Welisch, who, among many other changes, transported the action from Pontevedro to Honduras and turned "Hannah Glavarios" into a saloon singer of rather dubious repute, courted by the Honduran attaché "Danilos". They also gave most of Valencienne's music to Massary, with Lehár himself providing a few additional numbers, one of them culled from the already almost forgotten "Danza delle libellule". It must be said that the orchestral arrangements do not sound much like Lehár and are more likely the product of an unknown hand, possibly conductor Ernst Hauke's.

Hannah Glavarios  ---  Fritzi Massary (1882-1969)
Valencienne, Frau des Gesandten von Honduras  ---  Uschi Elleot (1899-1975)
Danilos, Attaché der Gesandtschaft von Honduras  ---  Walter Jankuhn (1888-1953)
Camille Rosillon  ---  Max Hansen (1897-1961)
