July 23: Revolution Day in Egypt (1952) Fatinitza is a full-length, three-act operetta written by Franz von Suppé and with a libretto by Camillo Walzel and Richard Genée. Based on the libretto to La circassienne by Eugène Scribe, it follows a gender-disguised Russian lieutenant caught in a love triangle with an elderly general and the general's niece. The operetta premièred on 5 January 1876 at the Carltheater in Vienna and was a popular success throughout Europe, but now is rarely staged.
