Joseph Haydn's employers, the Eszterházy family, had turned their palace into the most important centre of aristocratic theatre in eighteenth-century Hungary. They built a large opera house and a smaller puppet theatre which created ideal conditions for the performance of a colourfully assorted programme of house productions and for itinerant stage, opera and puppet troupes. Philemon and Baucis was composed and performed to mark a visit the Empress Maria Theresia paid to Prince Miklós Eszterházy. It may be presumed that the work also marked the opening of the puppet theatre (one contemporary report speaks of a "brand-new theatre"). The singspiel itself is framed by a prelude and a postlude. The postlude in particular points to the Empress's visit; in a change of scene, Jupiter's statue is replaced by the imperial emblem, while several allegorical figures (Fame, Charity, Justice, Bravery, Time, Patriotism, etc.) join in paying homage and giving their blessings to the ruling dynasty. The music of Joseph Haydn's three-section German puppet opera Philemon and Baucis is fragmentary. The middle part, in which the true action takes place, has however survived in almost complete form.
