Ritter Pásmán, to a libretto by L. Dóczi after J. Aranyi, was first performed in Vienna at the Court Opera on 1 January 1892.
"Over the next quarter of a century [from 1885] a further 14 operettas and even a grand opera (Ritter Pásmán, 1892) cemented Strauss’s position as the leading light in ‘Silver Age’ Viennese operetta." Peter Kemp in Grove Music Online.
