* n Inspired by models from the Commedia dell’Arte, the plot is set
in Seville and presents the old »Greybeard« Don Belflor

Inspired by models from the Commedia dell’Arte, the plot is set in
Seville and presents the old
“Greybeard” Don Belflor (a retired bullfighter and womanizer), his
young wife Coraline and
her lover Tracolin. In a highly contemporary way, this leads to a
three-way relationship of which
everyone approves. The ‘accord parfait’ is a perfect triad
consisting of exactly three notes. It is
noticeable that the libretti of the Second Republic were no longer
subject to censor.

Two arias were planned for each role. As a flautist, Tracolin also
knows how to evoke famous
melodies from the French opera repertoire in his advances. The
centrepieces are the two trios.
One of these, the variation number “Ah! vous dirai-je, maman”, is
the jewel of the opera: here,
vocal virtuosity and the comedy of the situation are combined with
brilliant ease.

The vocal score is based on the first scholarly-critical edition of
the opera. This appears in the
series “LOpéra français” edited by Paul Prévost. Here the spoken
dialogue text is integrated with
the music for the first time.

- Based on the Urtext of the new series “L’Opéra français”

- Original French text with singing German translation

- Extensive foreword (Fr/Ger/Eng)
