Bitter Sweet is an operetta in three acts written by Nol Coward and first produced in 1929 at Her Majesty's Theatre in London. It ran for a very successful 967 performances.
The relatively simple plot - set in 19th century and early 20th century England and Austria-Hungary, and concerning a young woman's elopement with her music teacher - is used as the hook for a series of light operatic numbers, many with complex melodies strongly reminiscent of Gilbert and Sullivan. Of the songs in the show, the best known by far is "I'll See You Again", used as a recurring motif throughout the play. Another popular song is "If Love Were All". Short on memorable Cowardian dialogue, Bitter Sweet nonetheless stands out as containing some of Coward's best music and has always been popular in revivals around the world, a number of which have been recorded on CD. It was filmed twice, in 1933 in black-and-white (in Britain, with Anna Neagle and Fernand Gravet in the leading roles) and in 1940 in Technicolor by MGM, starring Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. Coward disliked the 1940 film.
