“The [illeg.] season of German opera, which was inaugurated at the Stadt theatre [sic] on Wednesday evening, bids fair to prove a magnificent success. With first class artists, a full chorus and an efficient orchestra it could scarcely be otherwise. This evening ‘Faust’ will be given with the full strength of the company.”

Announcement: New-York Daily Tribune, 05 June 1869, 5.

“A German Opera Company, on the coöperative plan, has engaged the Stadt Theater. Nearly all the German artists familiar to New-York are concerned in it—among them Mesdames Johannsen, Frederici, and Rotter, Miss Josey Hoflé, Habelmann, Himmer, Lotti, Formes and Hermanns.”

Review: New York Post, 05 June 1869.

“At the Stadt Theatre last night a performance of ‘Faust’ was given by the associated artists of the company. Frederici is a Marguerite who has an admirable conception of the part, and she has given the greatest satisfaction in it, ‘many a time and oft,’ in this city. Delicate, simple and tender, yet by no means lacking in human touches, her Marguerite is a personation which would do credit to singers of far wider celebrity. She was aided last night by Johannsen, Himmer, Steinecke and Weinlich. For this evening ‘Der Freischutz’ is announced.”
