Ingwelde, 2012: p.[v] (In 1938, five years after Schillings's death, his widow Barbara von Schillings (formerly Barbara Kemp, one of the great dramatic sopranos of her era) made a valiant attempt to revive Ingwelde at the Berlin State Opera, where she functioned as stage director. To help the work find its way back into the repertoire she made a number of changes to the libretto)
