Misc. Comments

  • The assumption is that this opera had a chorus, but the page may have to be re-tagged if a full score reveals that it doesn't.
  • In Grove's dictionary the first performance is 10 Ferbuary, not March. But in the only edition of libretto (1823) it is March (see Polish Wikipedia).
  • Overture was published by Breitkopf in Leipzig in 1826 (late 1825?) as Kurpiński's Op.14 (Intelligenz-Blatt zur AMZ 1826 No.1)
  • At least some parts of the score are in the library of Warszawskie Towarzystwo Muzyczne im Stanisława Moniuszki.
