This opera was premiered by Klemperer in 1924 but was lost then rediscovered at the end of the 70s. The plot includes crazy counts, passion, a church wedding, curses, indomitable love and arson which belies its true inception: Schreker apparently conceived this opera whilst falling asleep on a train and Irrelohe is the name of a station somewhere between Dresden and Nuremberg!
