Ingwelde was first performed in Karlsruhe at the Hoftheater on November 13, 1894.
"Although Schillings's earliest efforts at composition were concentrated towards songs, chamber and orchestral music, opera remained his major preoccupation. This first opera was Ingwelde, a music drama based on a poem by Count Ferdinand von Sporck, which recounts the Scandinavian Svarfdälasaga in Zedlitz's Altnordische Bilder. First performed in Karlsruhe in 1894 under Felix Mottl, initially it was greeted with critical approval and received further performances under Strauss in Munich in 1897."
