"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, though even in the composer’s lifetime only three of these found international success: Die Fledermaus (1874), Eine Nacht in Venedig (1883) and Der Zigeunerbaron."
