This miniature comic opera for tenor and piano with text by Edward Einhorn is based on the real letters of Karl Marx to Friedrich Engels. Marx occasionally asked Engels, who was substantially better off financially than him, for financial assistance in the real-life hardships which were part of the life of the founder of the social theory.
