Misc. Comments

Cast of characters: Asgar (knight), Skjalm (Korsridder- Crusader?), Henning (borgfoged = Bailiff) , Jomfru Rigmor , Ella, and Chorus. + Orchestra (presumably, rather than piano.)

Overture given its British premiere in 1874 according to several sources (though the Athenaeum's reporter preferred a Svendsen Scherzo in the same concert.)
