||Autograph ms. at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin
The manuscript (autograph) is at SBB (State Library of Berlin), scanned in, I think. The overture has been recorded on cpo (the opera may have been broadcast?). - Schissel (the complete(?) opera is now on a cpo 2-CD set.)
Published in a French/German vocal score (or piano reduction with words? not clear from description) (as La Fiancée du Brigand, by Richault) - Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 18e année (32e de la collection), Nº 29, 18 Juillet 1829, p.504, r.207.
A polonaise (or variations on?) from this opera was arranged for piano and published (by Richault) separately (Richault plate 2143) and, it seems, as the 3rd of a set of 3 piano pieces (2 rondos and a polonaise, Op.158). Variations on a chorus were also published by Richault (now(?) given Op.159, no.1 by the Gesellschaft.) (Both piano works mentioned in Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 19e année (33e de la collection), Nº 16, 17 avril 1830, p.256, r.76, 77.)
