About the opera Der Evangelimann

Der Evangelimann (The Evangelist) is an opera in two acts by the Austrian composer Wilhelm Kienzl. The libretto, by the composer, is based on Leopold Florian Meissner's short story Aus den Berichten eines Polizeikommissärs.
Kienzl composed the opera in a relatively short space of time during 1894 in Graz and in the little Austrian town of Vöcklabruck. When he played extracts from the score to conductor Karl Muck and Count Hochberg (then artistic director of the Berlin Opera), they immediately secured the rights to the premiere. The score was published by Musikverlages Bote & Bock Berlin GmbH, now part of Boosey & Hawkes.
