Lehár's operetta Giuditta, composed to a libretto by Paul Knepler and Fritz Löhner, premiered in Vienna at the Staatsoper on January 20, 1934.
After a pause of nearly 5 years, Lehár wrote what would be his last operetta: Giuditta. Staring Richard Tauber and Jarmila Novotna, the work was well-received by audiences, but lambasted by the critics. Yet Lehár considered it above the rest of his oeuvre, stating: "Giuditta is my favorite child; I have been able to put into it something created from my innermost being. With it I have given of my best." Quoted in Grun: Gold and Silver, p. 246.
