Re: [ARSCLIST] Lysistrata Overture

I've a US pathe record no later than 1920. It contains a "Lysistrata Overture" Parts 1 & 2. No composer. It's performed by the Pathe Freres Orchestra. It's probably pressed from French masters.

Any idea who the composer might be?

Of course, it may be a concert piece or an Ouverture to incidentla music or another sort of work. But if it is opera, the candidates according to the Dictionary Catalogue of Operas and Operettas would be Feautrier (1855) and P. Lincke (1874), though the latter is probably German.
