Die Verschworenen, also known as Der häusliche Krieg (D 787) is an 1823 one-act singspiel by Franz Schubert after a libretto by Ignaz Franz Castelli with spoken dialogue by the composer. Castelli's libretto was based on Lisistrata, ou Les Athéniennes, Comédie en un acte et en prose, mêlée de vaudevilles by François-Benoît Hoffman, which had premiered at the Théâtre Feydeau in Paris in 1802. The French play in turn was based on Lysistrata by Aristophanes (411 BCE).
