Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué (1777-1843)

German writer (b. 12 February 1777 at Brandenburg an der Havel [N.S.] ; d. 23 January 1843 [N.S.] in Berlin), born Friedrich Heinrich Karl de la Motte, also known as Baron Fouqué.

Tchaikovsky's Settings of Works by Fouqué

Tchaikovsky's opera Undina (1869) was based on Fouqué's novel Undina (1811), in a Russian translation by Vasily Zhukovsky (1783–1852).

Tchaikovsky subsequently considered the subject of Undina for a new opera (1878) and ballet (1886), neither of which were ultimately composed.
