Misc. Comments

First performance 1846, not 1849, according to Operone.

Overture published by Lose in an arrangement in 1873.

There is a vocal score of a 10-number (earlier, or later?) version of the opera (1 act) here. (The Lose plate is also 2168.)

Recorded in 1999 on the Dacapo CD label.

Initially one act, then revised, expanded and divided into two acts in the late 1850s (by 1858 or so).
