A lady trick-rider billed as ‘Miss Ella’, made her début at Vienna’s Carl-Theater on 7 February 1855. Her act was a sensation and ran for 51 performances.

However Carl Haslinger, Strauss’s publisher knew something Strauss didn't: 'Miss Ella' was the stage-name of Olmar Stokes, a man, so he amended the title to simply 'Ella-Polka'.
