In 1876, the director of the Théȃtre des Folies-Dramatiques, Louis Cantin, hired Planquette to compose the operetta, which had originally been intended for Hervé. Despite initially mixed reviews, it became probably the most popular French operetta of all time, with hit productions in London and elsewhere.
