Program Notes

The Fortune Teller is an operetta in three acts written by Victor Herbert, with a libretto by Harry B. Smith. It premiered on Broadway on September 26, 1898, at Wallack's Theatre and ran for 40 performances.

The story is set in Hungary and involves Irma, an heiress from Budapest, who is studying for the ballet. Irma is in love with a young Hussar captain but is being forced to marry the silly Count Barezowski. When a gypsy fortune teller, Musette, arrives, she is mistaken for Irma, a case of mistaken identity that fosters many complications.
