La Fille Du Tambour Major was first produced at the Folies-Dramatiques in Paris on 13 December 1879, when the leading female role of Stella (the Drum-Major's daughter) was played by Juliette Simon-Girard. London audiences first saw the piece in H.B. Farnie's adaptation at the Alhambra Theatre, Leicester Square, on 19 April 1880, with Constance Loseby as Stella. Shortly afterwards La Fille Du Tambour Major was produced under the management of Charles Morton at the Royal Connaught Theatre, Holborn (previously known as the Holborn Amphitheatre, 1874-1879, and subsequently as the Alcazar Theatre, 1882-1883). On this occasion the part of Stella was played by Amy Grundy.
