About the opera Spitzentuch der Königin

Das Spitzentuch der Königin (The Queen's Lace Handkerchief) is an operetta by Johann Strauss II. The libretto by Heinrich Bohrmann-Riegen and Richard Genée was based on Cervantes.

It was first performed on 1 October 1880 in Vienna at the Theater an der Wien under the composer with Therese Braunecker-Schäfer, Alexander Girardi, Eugenie Erdösy, Karoline Tellheim, Hermine Meyerhoff, Felix Schweighofer, and Ferdinand Schütz.

The work is rather obscure nowadays, but the waltz Rosen aus dem Süden (Roses from the South), which incorporates melodies from the operetta, is well-known.
