(Music by Franz Lehár: Book and lyrics by Bela Jenbach)
Presented in London at the Shaftesbury Theatre opening 9 June, 1925 (95 perfs) with English lyrics by Douglas Furber and additional songs by Max Darewski
Clo-Clo, a Parisian revue star, has troops of admirers: her favourite, Maxime, has youth but no money, and Severin (the mayor of Perpignan) the opposite! Severin's wife intercepts a begging letter from Clo-Clo calling him "Little Daddy", believes her his. love-child and decides to mother Clo-Clo. Severin is amazed at them appearing together, but stands by Clo-Clo when she is arrested for punching a policeman - and even when she is happily united with Maxime. A racy 'modern' score, with jazz and Java rhythms alongside some fetching waltzes.
