About Arthur Hammerstein

Opera producer, Arthur Hammerstein, was the son of the first Oscar Hammerstein. He began his theatrical career as his father's assistant and became a producer when his father, leaving the theatre to resume his work as an opera impresario, handed over the flourishing Naughty Marietta to him. Among his own noteworthy mountings were The Firefly (1912), High Jinks (1913), Katinka (1915), Wildflower (1923), Rose‐Marie (1924), Song of the Flame (1925), and Sweet Adeline (1929). In 1927 he built the Hammerstein Theatre, which he lost shortly thereafter in the Depression.
