"Despite its risqué text, Feuersnot boasted distinguished interpreters from the start: in Dresden the cross-grained lovers were Annie Krull and Karl Scheidemantel, destined respectively to be Strauss’s original Electra and the first Rosenkavalier Faninal, in Vienna Leopold Demuth sang the hero while Mahler conducted, and Berlin fielded Emmy Destinn as the (anti-)heroine. Since then, at least in Bavaria and adjacent regions, the opera has kept a toehold in the repertory." Bryan Gilliam and Charles Youmans in Grove Music Online. Item #27098
