The piece was Sousa's first successful operetta and his most successful stage work.

It garnered 112 performances in New York and also created a sensation in Europe. Sousa extracted a march from it, using two of the operetta's most popular themes, and it too became a hit. Arrangements of it were subsequently made for various and quite exotic instruments, including piano, guitar, banjo, zither, and mandolin. But it was, of course, the band version of this march that achieved the most success then and the one that remains popular today.
