Misc. Comments

Discussed e.g. by Brown (1984) pp.75–84 (Brown regards it as a "milestone in the development of German opera whose significance has too often been overshadowed by Weber's Der Freischütz (1821)".

A Paris: Maurice Schlesinger edition from ca.1830s (plate M.S. 955) is at the Anna Amalia Bibliothek.

Overture published separately by Peters, announced separately by AMZ in the October 1823 Intelligenzblatt supplement with Spohr's quartet Op.61.
