  • A new operette, The Fair Captive of Samarcand, was being enacted, and the frequenters of Garble's were all curious to behold the débutante, Jenny Mere, who was said to be both pretty and talented.

    —Max Beerbohm, The Happy Hypocrite, 1897

    This French (or German) variant of 'operetta' isn't in my dictionary of music, though the OED has it.
