Libretto discovered

A copy of the text of the marionette opera „Der Hexenschabbas“ (The witch party), set to music by Haydn in 1773 and performed also in Schönbrunn for Empress Maria Teresia, has been found at the Anna Amalia Library in Weimar (Germany) during catalogue works. The volume bears the title "Der Hexenschabbas. Ein Marionettenfest in einem Aufzug" and contains 10 pages and two woodcuts, but no indication of the authors or where and when it had been published. A first copy had already been discovered at the Wienbibliothek (Vienna City Library) in 2005.
