Le coeur et la main, to a libretto by Nuitter and Beaumont, was first performed in Paris at the Nouveautés on October 19, 1882.

"Much of Lecocq’s music is characterized by a light touch, but he could also adopt a more lyrical and elevated style than Offenbach and termed several of his operettas opéras comiques. His greatest popular triumph, La fille de Madame Angot, has remained a classic among operettas, and demonstrates Lecocq’s abundant flow of pleasing melodies, his deft exploitation of rhythm for a lively theatrical effect, impressive building up of extended numbers, and typically French shaping of phrases."
