Light Cavalry Overture

Light Cavalry Overture is the overture to Franz von Suppé’s operetta Light Cavalry (German: Leichte Kavallerie), premiered in Vienna in 1866. Although the operetta is rarely performed or recorded, the overture is one of Suppé's most popular compositions, and has achieved a quite distinct life of its own, divorced from the opera of which it originally formed a part. Many orchestras around the world have the piece in their repertoire, and the main theme of the overture has been quoted numerous times by musicians, cartoons and other media.

    O none but gods have power their love to hide,
    Affection by the count’nance is descride.
    The light of hidden fire it selfe discovers,
    And love that is conceal’d, betraies poore lovers.
    Christopher Marlowe (1564–1593)

    To fight aloud is very brave,
    But gallanter I know,
    Who charge within the bosom
    The Cavalry of Woe.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
