In the 19th century, travel became a big thing. From novels about exotic Brighton to operas set in far-flung places like India or Africa, it was all the rage.
Suppe was a light opera and operetta composer, whose best works were Ganymede and Galatea (1865), Fatinitza (1876) and Boccaccio (1879). He also wrote several socially relevant pieces.
Die Afrikareise (The Africa Trip), 1893 – Overture
The overture to the light opera Die Afrikareise by Franz von Suppe is a typical overture, full of structure and focus. It is a fine example of the work that Suppe made his own and one that will remain a favorite of fans of Viennese overtures.
This overture was originally written for the March 1883 premiere of the opera, but when it was revised in 1893, a replacement overture by Paul Lincke was added. While Lincke’s piece does not have the conciseness and spark of Suppe’s original, it still contains many of the same motifs.
