Program Notes

Babes in Toyland is an operetta composed by Victor Herbert with a libretto by Glen MacDonough (1870–1924), which wove together various characters from Mother Goose nursery rhymes into a Christmas-themed musical extravaganza. The original production opened at the Chicago Grand Opera house in June 1903 and toured to several East Coast cities before opening in New York in October 1903; it ran for 192 performances. This was followed by many successful tours and revivals. The piece was so popular that it spawned other "fairy-tale" shows over the next decade.

George Bruns wrote the theme music for the 1961 Walt Disney feature film Babes in Toyland," based on Herbert's operetta.
