I am not sure, whether the family relation of Suppe with Donizetti is really true. It was not only a slander in Vienna because of surprising invitation of (in that time) unknown Suppe to Josephtadter Theather by its director Pokorny ??? However, it is true, that Suppe and Donizetti met in Vienna, becam to be a frends. Donizetti teached Suppe and probably (its is not sure) they went together to Italy.
The family relation is mentioned by the Grove, and at least for me that's good enough. If you can find genealogical records to prove or disprove this, that would be great. If not, oh well. Dmetric 19:40, 21 September 2005 (UTC)
Dichter und Bauer predates the first publication of I've been working on the railroad by about 50 years, and have an identical tune in them. Is it coincidence, or was it borrowed from von Suppe? Aaron Bruce (talk) 17:44, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
