In Emmerich Kálmán’s Gypsy Princess (1915), Sylva Varescu, a well-known cabaret singer, is in love with Prince Edwin von und zu Lippert-Weylersheim, who has had another match arranged by his disapproving family. In the end, the Prince's mother, Princess Karen, saves the day by revealing that she had also once been a cabaret singer.
