The Vagabond King is a 1925 operetta by Rudolf Friml, with a book and lyrics by Brian Hooker and William H. Post, telling a highly romanticized tale concerning the 15th century poet Fran├žois Villon.
The original production opened at the Casino Theatre on September 21, 1925. It starred Dennis King as Villon and Carolyn Thomson as Katherine and ran for a successful 511 performances. The production was lavish and used an unusually large pit orchestra. The operetta then had a successful run in London in 1927 at the Winter Garden Theatre, running for 480 performances, and toured extensively. Its occasional revivals include a 1943 Broadway revival. It was also performed regularly in the 1980s in New York by the Light Opera of Manhattan.
