Sancta Susanna is an early opera by Paul Hindemith in one act, with a German libretto by August Stramm. Composed over a two-week period in January/February 1921, its premiere was on 26 March 1922, at Opernhaus, Frankfurt. The work is his third and final in a triptych of expressionist influenced one-act operas - the previous two being M��rder, Hoffnung der Frauen op. 12, and Das Nusch-Nuschi op. 20 - and much like the previous works, scandalised Frankfurt���s concert going public, affording the young composer heightened critical attention and notoriety.
