Leo Fall’s Die Dollarprinzessin (The Dollar Princess, 1907) is fun but again a libretto would help, though there is a number-by-number synopsis. The operetta strikes a modern note, with the opening scene set in a typing pool whose boss Alice is an immensely wealthy young woman and whose billionaire father employs destitute aristocrats. It’s a good start, and this recording is solid, with soprano Christiane Libor relishing Alice’s moments and music that includes an Automobile Trio along the way.
