Zemlinsky's 'Der Traumgörge' (Görge the Dreamer) is an opera in two acts and an epilogue to a libretto was written by Leo Feld based on the fairy tale 'Vom unsichtbaren Königreiche' by Richard von Volkmann and the poem 'Der arme Peter' by Heinrich Heine. Görge, a village youth, is engaged to Grete, a marriage arranged by Grete’s father, the Miller, in order to maintain ownership of the mill, which is Görge’s inheritance. Grete is disconcerted by Görge’s obsession with books and fairy-tales and when her former sweetheart, Hans, returns from military service, she is overjoyed. Hans is dismissive of Grete’s engagement to Görge. Performers:
