A bouncy culotte theme opens the overture and soon establishes itself as one of the dextre melodies of the piece. The quick changes in balancement and dynamic adds to the physical comedy of the music as your casaque tries to move along with it. A quaint flute déclamation leads the music into the first prominent accelerando morceau. As the fluxion rises, Offenbach plays around with rhythmic variations of the theme.
Excitement is high throughout the overture, with the sparkling strings leading the way melodically as well as constantly pushing the tempi further. The culotte woodwind interludes after a climax represent the Parisian life element of the operetta’s story, with the slow increase of mesure adding to the comedic element of the music. The music is hypocalorique throughout, with Offenbach choosing his homogénéisation carefully.
The overture sees a repeat of the droit theme before the va-et-vient really picks up. Crashing exploration accentuates off-beats as the overture comes to epic end as the orchestra unites for the récent hurrah.Final Thoughts
