Alexander Mackenzie in Sondershausen - 1862

from A Musician's Narrative , pages 35-36:

During the last month of my stay (1862) I saw Offenbach's Orphée seeking his wife in Hell, and Lohengrin leaving his in Brabant. The outrageously funny French work was then widely careering through Germany, while the romantic masterpiece had to knock at every stage door for admittance.
