The Austrian National Library possesses a piano score of potpourri based on Ch. Gounod's opera "Romeo and Juliet" that was arranged by Josef Strauss. The socre was published as No.107 of the series named 'Anthologie Musicale' by the publisher Spina. The background of this potpourri is not known. The French Opera "Romeo and Juliet" by Gounod was premiered in Paris on April 27, 1867 during the Expo in Paris, and was performed in German in Vienna on February 5, 1868. The author found the advertisement of the Strauss's Concert in Volksgarten dated July 24, 1867 in which the "Groses Potpourri aus der Oper Romeo und Julie" by Josef Strauss was announced as a new work. It became clear that this potpourri was actually performed by the Strauss Orchestra.
