[The program listed Kalisch as Siegfried and Grienauer as Gunther, and both men were reviewed in local newspapers. Curiously, however, one critic cited Alvary as the Siegfried, while another identified Beck as the Gunther.]

[In this season's performances of Götterdämmerung, the following music was omitted: the scene with the three norns in the Prologue; in Act I, Scene 3, the scene between Brünnhilde and Waltraute; and Act II, Scene 1, with Alberich and Hagen.]
