OCLC nos. 864205582, 19008410, 81845610.La Petite Mariée was first performed at the Théâtre de la Renaissance in Paris on December 21, 1875. "[Lecocq] confirmed his international reputation with La petite mariée (1875) and Le petit duc (1878), both of which have remained in the French operetta repertory... 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 operettas "demonstrate his 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."
