Albert Lortzing and his wife Regina Lortzing were engaged at the Detmold court theater in 1826. During this time Albert Lortzing was not only an actor and singer , but also wrote a number of pieces of music . In 1833 the Lortzings got an engagement in Leipzig. Albert Lortzing discovered opera and increasingly devoted more time to music than acting.
Albert Lortzing's job as an actor was increasingly endangered by his work with opera compositions, which is why he was quickly appointed Kapellmeister of the Leipzig City Theater and swung the baton for the following years.
In 1846 he lost his position as Kapellmeister in Leipzig and got a job in the theater in Vienna. In 1850 he was appointed Kapellmeister at the Friedrich Wilhelm Stadttheater in Berlin.
On January 20, 1851, Albert Lortzing's last opera "Die Opernprobe" premiered in Frankfurt am Main. At this point the composer was already bedridden seriously ill and unable to pay a doctor. The day after the opera premiere, Albert Lortzing died, whose own life would be ideally suited as a model for a stage set about the splendor and misery of an artist's life, in Berlin.
