" ... the first Hungarian comic opera permitted by the censor, remained in the repertory for half a century. It is an innocent love story set around 1813 when the Russians and Habsburgs were allies; much of the music derives from folk material." Dezső Legány in Grove Dictionary of Opera.

Doppler is probably best known for his orchestrations of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies (1875); he had a successful career as both a flautist and a composer; he also served as conductor of the Vienna Hofopera Ballet and taught flute at the Vienna Conservatory.
