The Shubert brothers, "knowing of Romberg’s background... contracted him to rework Viennese operettas for American audiences. His first adaptation was The Blue Paradise (1915), a version of Edmund Eysler’s Ein Tag im Paradies. Among Romberg’s additions to the score was the waltz Auf Wiedersehn, his first hit." William A.
