Career’s top of Austrian composer Leo Fall became operetta “Madame Pompadour” staged in Berlin on 10th of September 1922. On the stage of Saint-Petersburg Theatre of Musical comedy it was never performed before.
Intrigues of court, light flirting, rebel spirit increasing among population dissatisfied by reign of Ludovic XV, irony towards favourite of king, luxury of court life, love troubles of story are framed by stylish lyrical, sentimental and at the same time a little bit ironic musical drapery of waltzes, dancing duets and “cascades”. Operetta tells about charming and clever favourite of king, actually uncrowned queen, who according to the legend was illegitimate daughter of grandee of high rank – Jeanne Antoinette Puasson, marquise Pompadour. 
One day during king’s absence accompanied by faithful maidservant she runs away from luxurious apartments of palace hoping to meet man of her dream… And she succeeds in finding the one whom she could love with all her heart, but risky plans of marquise are disrupted by sudden king’s arrival from the hunt. It’s worth much for Madame Pompadour to get out from such situation, especially because her beloved beauty is husband of her suddenly found stepsister. And almighty marquise steps back… it’s her destiny till the end of life to be near the king…
