The bachelor thesis focuses on the Pavel Vranický's ballet Das Waldmädchen, played for the first time in Vienna's theatre Kärntnertortheater in 1796. Two years later the ballet was brought to the Czech theatre Stavovské divadlo. There are several sheets of music in the České muzeum hudby for the ballet Das Waldmädchen. The music was compared to piano score from Vienna's Österreichische Nationalbibliothek. Three hypothetical librettos of Vranický's ballet have been worked up using the plot from theatre poster, the opera libretto of Weber's early opera Das Waldmädchen, which is in the Bama Lutes Deal's dissertation, and the character of each musical number.
