A Portrait of Mendelssohn

The production of Die Hochzeit des Camacho at the Königliches Schauspielhaus in Berlin in April 1827 brought irritations, frustrations, and disappointments to Felix Mendelssohn. In his account, Sebastian Hensel cites the narrow-mindedness of the manager, the intrigues behind the curtain, and the often annoying business with the actors and rehearsals that accompanied the opera's production. The experience apparently had a profound and long-lasting effect on Mendelssohn, deepening his dislike of Berlin. Ludwig Rellstab claimed that the opera was the work of an inexperienced composer, while the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung journal published a critical review.
