Babes in Toyland by Victor Herbert is considered the first American musical theater piece. It was performed last night at Carnegie Hall in a semi staged version which was nicely done and well received.
There was some dancing by individual characters and some costumes. It’s a long piece. The orchestration was first rate, and well worth hearing. 
the book was rewritten to replace jokes that no longer have currency now, and a Trump verse was inserted into one song; The Widow says if she married him she would soon be a widow. Well appreciated by the audience as you can imagine.
But the star of this show is beautiful music and lots of it.
Maestro Jack Lee was very fond of the score, and wanted to put on scenes from it. 
Anybody know if there is a video of it? The staging of he whole show had to be scrumptious.
It was well worth seeing.
