Martha, oder Der Markt zu Richmond, to a libretto by Friedrich Wilhelm Riese, was first performed at the Kärntnertor in Vienna on November 25, 1847.

"[Flotow] is best remembered for his romantic comic opera Martha, which continues to be staged; the aria ‘Ach so fromm’ (and in its Italian version as ‘M’appari tutt’ amor’) has become a staple of the tenor aria repertory." Peter Cohen in Grove Music Online.
