Copyright
Misc. Notes Possibly/probably extracted from RISM 464000246 - the autograph manuscript of the entire opera, which can be downloaded from SBB(erlin) here. 13 May 1820 is given as the date of completion of the whole opera, not just the overture. Jahns comments on Dresden. vollendet d: 13. May 1820. in his Carl Maria von Weber in seinen werken (Thematic Worklist) and RISM gives date for the autograph of 1819–1821 (perhaps for reasons explained by Jähns) rather than to 1820.
