This French rarity, with a libretto inspired by the works of Sir Walter Scott, was the first opera to reach 1,000 performances by the Opéra Comique de Paris. Boieldieu was praised for this work by none other than Rossini (“You have accomplished a remarkable feat, that of remaining true, witty, lively and dramatic”), Weber (“No one has written an opera of such from the Marriage of Figaro”), and Wagner (“The best of French culture is conveyed in this opera”). Although LA DAME BLANCHE has enjoyed popular revivals in Europe, it has not been performed in New York for 30 years.
