Hermann Klein in Liceo Theatre, Barcelona - January, 1896
from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 377:
Another light-opera debut at this period was that of the clever Spanish pianist and composer, Senor Albeniz, who conducted his “Magic Opal" during a run of considerable duration. A vastly superior work, however, was his “Pepita Jimenez,'' an exquisitely poetic opera founded upon Juan Valera's famous novel by Frank B. M. Coutts. I witnessed the production of “Pepita Jimenez'' at the Liceo Theatre, Barcelona, in January, 1896, and admired it so much that I often wonder why the little chef-d'oeuvre has traveled no farther.
