Adolf Mueller (1801 Tolna/Hungary - 1886 Vienna) moved to Vienna in 1823, where he got his first job as a singer at the Kaerntnertortheater (Theater at the Kaerntnertor). After some success as a composer, he was hired there as a conductor. He moved on to the Theater an der Wien und the Leopoldstaedter-Theater as a conductor and composer in residence. Adolf Mueller was an unusually prolific composer: ca 640 Operas, Singspiele, Comedies with song and other pieces for the stage have survived. His works were performed in Vienna's theaters and dominated the programs for many years to come.
