Perform this arrangement with lightness and joy. Please study the score to understand different expressions indicated in each section. For example, forte could mean a light forte or piano-like soft yet resonant forte depending on the ideal effect. It is impossible to list all of the potential expressiveness for this work, and indeed there is an abundance of artistry and style not mentioned in the original score. Therefore, this work demands performers'creative musical support in its interpretation. When constructing this arrangement, I considered the difference between wind ensemble and orchestral settings. Since it is difficult for winds to completely imitate the Viennese flavor, I have excluded those parts of music requiring excessive orchestral artistry. Also, be aware that the famous melody from its overture is also a part of the operetta. For that reason, do not superimpose the impression of the overture over the actual image of the operetta.
