Biographical note on librettist ... hu-Wikipedia lists 3 generations (though not the most directly related...) of Ábrányi Emil; the librettist is the 2nd, uncle of the first (1820-1850 - died the same year as his nephew was born apparently) - and father of a composer, conductor and opera director who is the one of the three to have an entry in en-Wikipedia (1882-1970) (whose grandfather, our first Emil's brother, was in turn a composer, the entry notes.)

Vocal score published in 1895 by Harmonia of Budapest and by Durdilly of Paris. Libretto published late 1894 in possibly limited release (WorldCat - to quote Worldcat: "Als Manuscript gedruckt"--front cover and title page; legal notice--title page; copyright notice dated December 13, 1894--title page; advertisement--verso of title page. Singers' names not given.)
