Die Afrikanerin', is a Viennese quadrille which Johann Strauss based on the themes from Meyerbeer's opera 'L'Africaine'. It was first heard in the Vienna Volksgarten on 7 July 1865 during a musical novelty festival with fireworks. Meyerbeer's opera is about fictitious events in the life of the real historical person, the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama.
