Titus Feuerfuchs, to Sutermeister's own libretto after J. Nestroy's Der Talisman, was first performed in Basle on April 14, 1958.
"Drawing his inspiration from a wide variety of literary models (Dostoyevsky, Flaubert, Nestroy, Wilde and Ionesco), he demonstrated an impressive versatility of approach, and always took care not to resort simply to well-tried formulae... Outside the opera house, Sutermeister achieved considerable popularity in Switzerland with his choral works, many of which were designed to be performed by amateur groups." Erik Levi in Grove Music Online. Item #26167
