In which late 19th century opera do sausages play an important part in the proceedings?

@sophocles,
The little known British Opera, "Bangers and Mash"



Featuring Peter Sellars and Sophia Loren

Lyrics:
I met 'er down in Napoli and didn't she look great
And so I brought 'er back to Blighty just to show me mates
And though we're married 'appily, I'll tell ya furthermore
I 'aven't 'ad a decent meal since Nineteen-Forty-Four

SL: Eat your minestrone, Joe
PS: That's all you ever say
SL: Eat your macaroni, Joe
PS: Ev'ry blinkin' day
SL: No wonder you're so boney, Joe, and skinny as a rake
PS: Well then, give us a bash at the bangers and mash me Muvver used to make

PS: Bangers and mash
SL: Minestrone
PS: Bangers and mash
SL: Macaroni
PS: Give us a bash at the bangers and mash me Muvver used to make

SL: Eat your tagliatelli, Joe
PS: That's all I've 'eard for years
SL: Eat your vermicelli, Joe
PS: It's comin' out me ears
SL: You've got to fill your belly, Joe; Joe, for heaven's sake
PS: Well then, give us a bash at the bangers and mash me Muvver used to make
SL: Well alright!

PS: Bangers and mash
SL: Tagliatelli
PS: Bangers and mash
SL: Vermicelli
PS: Ah, give us a bash at the bangers and mash me Muvver used to make....

@Lordyaswas,
Hollywood needs to make a 3D ... NO! 4D version of that! Everyone would flock to see it in IMAX. Shocked

Bangers and Mash: The IMAX Experience! Starring Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry!

It was probably one of those pathetic Austrian operettas--they were just the würst.

@fresco,
This was a 20th century opera (1920) The Question says late 19th century. The closest I can get is the Gilbert and Sullivan opera The Grand Duke 1896 which involves sausage rolls.

@sophocles,
Alas it seems you are correct. The book was late 19th century.

@sophocles,
Try "The Gypsy Barron" (Johann Strauss II) 1885
Quote:
....Zsupán arrives and tells everyone that he is a highly successful pig-breeder adding that he lives for sausages and wine and has little time for art...
