Description: This 1769 opéra comique is charmingly melodic and musically varied in its different airs but such things as its programmatic overture, having both the serious and comic main roles on stage at the same time, a heroine who saves the day and an extended final scene built around the motif which begins the work - all commonplaces in the genre - were new at the time, making it also an influential work in the genre. All French dialogue has been cut with the printed synopsis explaining the action between the airs. 2 CDs. Libretto available on-line. William Sharp (baritone), Dominique Labele, Ann Monoyios (sopranos), Opera Lafayette; Ryan Brown.
