Here a spectacular musical resurrection, since it restitutes a mythical operetta which made run any Paris many hundreds of times in the Fifties. At this time, the style was contemporary and concerned all the generations. What happen one half-century later, in a time or the rap style has trashed the traditional values.  Jean-Luc Choplin, the new director of Châtelet, takes a risk by programming this score born in 1951, and suddenly so retro that it appears completely Kitsch. But, it also joins again with the great tradition of this prestigious theater, reserved for the light music during decades. In a way, our present, in search of vacuum-cleaned old-fashioned things, gives him reason, from Bollywood to karaoke of teenagers, the old women charts come again easily.  Nevertheless, the current version is degreased of these rubbles of post-war period.  The scenario was concentrated on the action and the dialogues were reduced. The orchestration neglected coppers if at the time snuffed to insert in the orchestra, a guitar, a piano, a battery jazzy. The setting in scene gave up the yelling costumes and western for a scenography much more current signed Emilio Sagi, specialist in the Spanish zarzuela. The acknowledged goal, to avoid micro waving a heated Mariano, to cook a true Parisian event, dans l'air du temps.
