Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Report on the celebration in Berlin and Dresden of the two hundredth anniversary of Weber's birth. A new production of Euryanthe was staged in Berlin, with changes in the libretto including a postwar setting. The new production is described as a "magical-realistic" fairy tale showing the crippling psychic effect of the war, particularly on Adolar. Also reviews other festival performances of Weber's music.
