Marie Stuart Opera en cinq Actes, Paroles de M. Théodore Anne... Prix net, 36 fr. [Piano-vocal score]
Paris: L.B. Jouard [L.B.J. 126.], 1849. Probable First Edition. Lesure II, p. 241. Worldcat (one complete copy only, at Harvard). OCLC no. 49827597. Marie Stuart, to a libretto by Théodore Anne after Friedrich von Schiller, was first performed at the Opéra in Paris on December 6, 1844. "After the premiere, Niedermeyer was made a Chevalier (Knight) of the French Legion of Honour, but Marie Stuart had only a modest success. It remained in the repertoire of the Paris Opera with some cuts to the score until 1846, after which it was largely forgotten. It was, however, revived in Stuttgart in 1877 (performed in German translation), and extracts from the work were performed by Zurich Opera at the 2002 Festival della Valle d'Itria in Italy. Several pieces from the opera were published separately and were frequently performed in concerts and recitals." Wikipedia online.. Folio.
