Von Heute auf Morgen is an early dodecaphonic opera. The libretto was written by the composer's wife of the day.
"I have proved in my operas Von heute auf morgen and Moses und Aron that every expression and characterization can be produced with the style of free dissonance" he wrote.
In 1930, after the Frankfurt premiere, Schönberg himself conducted a wireless broadcast performance in Berlin.
Synopsis: The husband and wife have returned from an evening out of the house and recall the flirtations of earlier. Their small child interrupts, and is put back to bed. A singer from earlier telephones, making the husband jealous. The wife changes into a cocktail dress, then back into the simple house-dress seen at the start of the opera.
In the morning, the singer and a friend arrive for an early visit, and are served coffee. They champion all the latest trends in society. When they leave, the husband and wife realize, over breakfast, that their own relationship is based on "love", not mere fashion.
