Die Wiener in Berlin, a Liederspiel to a libretto by C.E. von Holtei, was first performed in Dresden at the Linckeschen Bade on August 24, 1825.
"Fresh from successes in Berlin, Carl Eduard von Holtei, a distinguished journalist and actor, brought to the Dresden stage in 1825 his Liederspiel Die Wiener in Berlin, a dialogue farce (Mundartsoper) in the Viennese style of Adolf Bäuerle and Meyer von Schauensee. Much of the music derives from pre-existing sources, but additional songs were provided by Marschner and others." A. Dean Palmer in Grove Music Online. Item #25831
