The fact that “opéra comique”, rooted in the folk art of the French
vaudeville, was brought to its
high-point by Gluck, a German composer working in Italian, clearly
demonstrates the close
relationships and interconnections made in European musical life in
the mid-18th century. With
“L’Ile de Merlin ou Le monde renversé” Gluck created an enchanting
buffo work which draws its
charm not only from its colourful music with appealing details of
instrumentation and
characterisation but also from the juxtaposition of real,
mythological and fairy-tale figures as well
as from the critical social undertones in the libretto.

The new edition is based on the Gluck Complete Edition, Series IV,
volume 1, edited by
Günter Haußwald.

- Based on the Urtext of “Gluck, Complete Works”

- Original French text with singing German translation

- Detailed foreword (Ger/Eng/Fr)
