The work was performed first at the Theater an der Wien, Vienna, on 6 December 1882. It was a success and allowed Millöcker to retire from conducting. Johann Strauss II rejected the libretto in favor of A Night in Venice,but Millöcker's work turned out to be an enduringly popular operetta, with over 5,000 productions.

The piece played at the Thalia Theatre in New York City in 1883 and then in English at the Casino Theatre in 1883. It was revived in New York at least three times: in 1898 at the American Theatre, in 1899 at the American Theatre, and in 1913 at the Casino Theatre.It was also performed in London at the Alhambra Theatre in 1884, in a four-act version.

The operetta has been filmed at least four times – once in English (1931), and once as a silent film (1927). It has also been performed on German television. Recent productions in English include Ohio Light Opera (1996), and Light Opera Works (1991).
