At the peak of von Scheffel's popularity in 1884, the opera "Der Trompeter von Saeckingen" was first performed in Leipzig. Victor Ernst Nessler was the composer; Rudolf Bunge wrote the libretto.
In addition to a lot of other material the score can be seen in the municipal archives of Bad Saeckingen.
