Commemorative tablet in Frankfurt

Commemorative tablet in Frankfurt

Lortzing never lived in Frankfurt, but, at the end of his life, when Lortzing was completely impoverished, "Die Opernprobe" - his last Spieloper - was performed at the Stadttheater in Frankfurt, Jan 20th while Lortzing was dying in his bed.
The plaque is in the Lortzingstraße.
