The Strauss family, father and sons, dominated the world of European ballroom dance with their music for nearly 100 years. It was Johann Strauss the Younger (1825 –1899), however, who won world fame as the “waltz king”. Among his more than 400 dance compositions, the most famous are The Blue Danube, Tales from the Vienna Woods, The Emperor Waltz, the Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka and and Wine, Women, and Song. Strauss also composed 16 operettas, the best known being Die Fledermaus and The Gypsy Baron.

Playwright Karl Haffner (1804 –1876) and librettist and composer Richard Genée (1823 –1895) adapted the play Le Réveillon by Henri Meilhac (1830 –1897) and Ludovic Halévy (1834 –1908), French authors best known for the libretto for Georges Bizet's Carmen.
