I have uploaded a broadcast of the 1989 Bielefeld production of Schreker's Der singende Teufel (1924-28).

This is the only revival that the opera has had and it is therefore a pity that savage cuts and restructuring reduced the work from four acts to three. Nevertheless it is sung and played well enough to get an idea of the score, which is far removed from the luxuriant excesses of Die Gezeichneten, or even Irrelohe.

For background information and a plot synopsis of the original four-act version, see

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)
