in Germany - the 1870's

from Musings & memories of a musician, page 54:

During Hercules' rather pompous Aria... I thought I noticed a merry smile on the Crown Prince's face, and after the performance he said to me : 'You know, when you sang c in alien Zeiten' (for all times), I kept hearing ' in alien Zeitungen'" (in all the newspapers!) He seemed always ready for a good joke.
