Composed for the production of the play at the Haymarket Theatre, London in January, 1892.
The choral part is only used in the final number and apparently consists of 3 voices per part. The score contains various textual cues in both English and German for the timing of performance. Henschel specifies that the concert suite is to consist of the following numbers: 1, 5, 8, 14, 12, and 3. Some of the numbers have alternate endings in the score for the concert version.
