Moravian-born composer Ralph Benatsky, christened Rudolph Josef Frantisek Benatsky, created his biggest international success with his work Im weissen Rossel, or The White Horse Inn. Benatsky studied in Vienna and had a prominent career creating musical spectacles, operettas, comedies, and film scores. In the early part of his career he was well-known as a director of cabaret productions, first in Vienna, and later in Berlin. His own works for the theater were known for their lavish spectacle and extravagant production demands, which made them extremely popular with the general public. Although in his day he had many successes, he is today remembered primarily for the music from The White Horse Inn, which attained international fame, and which completely eclipsed the popularity of all of his earlier works. It was translated into English, French, Italian, and several other languages, and musical and dramatic interpolations were added that made the already grandiose production even more spectacular. The literary source for the libretto was a play by Blumenthal and Kadelburg which was adapted for musical spectacle by Hans Muller. The English book and lyrics were written by Harry Graham, the lyrics by Robert Stolz, and additional interpolated musical numbers added. There are many reasons for the show's incredible popularity, the most glaring reason being the sumptuous variety of Benatsky's score. Choruses, dances, spectacle, love themes, rhythmic and harmonic energy and drive in the orchestral writing, and bright lyricism and folk idioms in the melodies lend a popular appeal to the music and drama.
