Thank you for your help!

Operetta: for some serious music-lovers it’s long been a term of dismissal – if not actual abuse – and today it finds little support elsewhere.

This much-maligned art form (the diminutive “operetta” originally indicating a one-act piece) now tends to fall into a no-man’s-land of live entertainment somewhere between grand opera and modern musicals. Having developed from popular theatre traditions, including commedia dell’arte , operetta went on to flourish in distinct national styles throughout the 19th century. But since the 1920s and 1930s, its rich heritage has been eroded by new waves of pop culture, and in recent years operetta has fizzled into a cliché of sequins, frocks and feather boas.

This month a new production of Die Fledermaus , directed by Christopher Alden, and first seen at the Canadian Opera Company last year, opens at English National Opera this month. While it is hardly daring programming – the piece epitomises Viennese operetta, and is chief among a small number of surviving operettas – it highlights the many works that have disappeared and prompts the question of whether the form still has relevance for 21st-century audiences.

ENO has staged more operettas than many of its rival companies – Lehar’s The Merry Widow and Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado among them – but John Berry, the company’s artistic director, highlights problems faced by the big houses: “Operetta was the popular entertainment of the time, and that mixture of music and dialogue is never easy on the operatic stage, and isn’t something that’s absolutely natural for operatic singers.”

Google offers the most prestigious internship program, according to careers site Vault. Krisztian Bocsi/Bloomberg

Many job seekers care deeply about having brand-name companies on their resume, and this urge often surfaces in college, when students begin recruiting for internships. Among the thousands of large companies in the U.S., what internships do students covet the most?

Careers site Vault.com released a ranking of the most prestigious internships. It surveyed roughly 12,000 current and former interns from more than 110 internship programs to answer the question.

To see the top 10 most prestigious internships, open the gallery below. For the full top 20, go to the end of this article.

The 10 Most Prestigious Internships For 2018

For the third year in a row, Google takes the top spot. The company’s reputation as an attractive workplace with strong talent remains unmatched. “Anyone would hire you after you’ve worked there,” raved one respondent to Vault’s survey. The company is “trustworthy, advanced, always working harder and harder to achieve their goals,” said another Vault user. But that same user felt the company could be more transparent with consumers, presumably about how it uses their information. The user also offered this advice to future interns: “Be ambitious, strong-willed and expect to have to work on one-upping yourself all the time.”

On Vault’s list, Apple and Facebook maintain their second and third-place spots from last year, and Microsoft ranks fourth. Microsoft’s stock has more than doubled since early 2014, when Satya Nadella succeeded Steve Ballmer as CEO. Nadella even released a this year touting the turnaround, titled Hit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft's Soul and Imagine a Better Future for Everyone.

Amazon made a big leap in the ranking, jumping from number 11 last year to seven this year. Americans have developed a sense of awe about Amazon, especially after it purchased Whole Foods and surprised us all with the size of its ambition. Jeff Bezos’ 341,000-person company is recruiting business school students so aggressively that it has become the top MBA recruiter at Duke, Carnegie Mellon and the University of California, Berkeley.

Despite all the buzz about tech companies, finance and consulting firms continue to hold their ground as prestigious places to intern. Three banks made the top 20, including Goldman Sachs (#5), JPMorgan (#8) and Morgan Stanley (#9). Three professional services firms also broke the top 20: PwC (#13), Deloitte (#15) and the Boston Consulting Group (#16).
