Notes & Reviews:

"Less work and more pay!" It was with this perennial demand that Senior Overman Martin instigated the first strike on the Viennese operetta stage. Even though the miners' struggle gets lost in the further intricacies of the action, after the premiere of Der Obersteiger (The Overman) by Carl Zeller the press issued this verdict: "Here a dangerous theme was treated burlesquely". Composing was actually Zeller's side job; his main occupation was that of a principal and later section head in the Imperial and Royal Ministry of Education. A new highlight among CPO's operetta discoveries!
