Daniel-François-Esprit Auber (1782-1871), the composer of La Muette de Portici (1828) and Fra Diavolo (1830), was once regarded as one of the great figures of music, a staple of the operatic repertoire in France, and indeed around the world. It is now almost impossible to understand the extent of his once universal fame, his influence on contemporary composers. His operas were in the theatre repertories of the world until the 1920s, and innumerable arrangements of them were published and sold everywhere. The ubiquity of his overtures—Masaniello, Fra Diavolo, The Bronze Horse, The Black Domino, The Crown Diamonds—once as popular as those of Rossini and Suppé, and the influence of his melodies and dance rhythms on piano and instrumental music, and on Romantic comic opera, was overwhelming. In his operas Auber avoided any excess in dramatic expression; all emotion and expressiveness, any vivid depiction of local milieu, were realized within his discreetly nuanced tones, always stamped with a Parisian elegance. His operas were loved in his native France until the years before the First World War, with Fra Diavolo and Le Domino noir last performed at the Opéra-Comique in 1909. Auber’s career was a record of this success and appreciation. His appointment to the Institute (1829) was followed by other prestigious posts: as Director of Concerts at Court (1839), director of the Paris Conservatoire (1842), Musical Director of the Imperial Chapel (1852), and Grand Officer of the Légion d’Honneur (1861). During his lifetime, six biographies appeared contemporaneously, with another six appearing posthumously in the period up to 1914. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, however, reactions to Wagner, Impressionism and the Neo-Classicism of the Ballet Russe resulted in a growing lack of interest in the ancient traditions of opéra-comique, with its charming plots, melodic directness and rhythmic élan. Boieldieu, Hérold, Adam and Auber were relegated to the dustbin of history. Only in Germany did the genre continue to flourish; Auber’s most enduring work is still performed there. His death in pitiful conditions during the Siege of Paris (1871), in the city he always loved, marked the end of an era. Auber now occupies a shadowy niche in the general consciousness as the name of the metro station nearest the Palais Garnier, and remains unknown and neglected (apart of course from Fra Diavolo), although his impact on the nineteenth-century operatic theatre was just as great as Rossini’s. The time has surely come for Auber’s life and work, especially in association with his life-long collaborator Eugène Scribe (1791-1861)—master dramatist and supreme librettist, a determining force in the history of opera—to be reassessed. Perhaps then the world will begin to hear more of Auber’s elegant gracious, life-affirming music, written to Scribe’s words. The aim of the present study is to offer an overview of the life and work of Auber by close examination of his forty operas, with consideration of origins, casting, plot, analysis of dramaturgy and musical style, and reception history. This is presented in the context of Auber's relationship to the dominant genres of early nineteenth century French culture, opéra comique and grand opéra. The three evolving periods of Auber's unique involvement with opéra comique are of principal concern. This analysis of the operas is made in the context of Auber's crucial working relationship with Scribe, who provided 38 of his libretti. Their cooperation is unique and of great importance on several literary, musical and cultural levels. The nature of their interaction and personal friendship is assessed by a translation of the extant correspondence between them, some 80 letters that have not appeared in English before. The presentation of each opera is illustrated by musical examples from all the scores, prints from the complete works of Scribe and other theatrical memorabilia. The study also contains bibliographies of Auber’s works and their contemporary arrangements, studies of Auber’s and Scribe’s life and work, their artistic and historical milieux, and a discography.

服飾關乎人的全部,整個身體、人與身體,以及身體與社會的一切關聯。 ──── 羅蘭.巴特 林美香的《「身體的身體」:歐洲近代早期服飾觀念史》一書討論中古晚期至十七世紀,歐洲服飾文化中的重要觀念,包括文雅、中性之事、秩序、國族,並進一步探討這些觀念如何與文藝復興、宗教改革,以及國際貿易的發展交互作用,促使人們透過服飾重新思考自身形象的塑造,界定個人與教會、社會及國家的關係。 本書從亞當與夏娃為人類所穿上的第一件衣裳之案例,揭開服裝做為人類墮落與救贖之標記的歷程。之後透過伊拉斯摩斯換下奧斯丁修會會服的事件,討論人文學者個人身分認同、職涯變動與形象塑造的問題;卡爾斯達不穿天主教祭衣,改穿學院袍主持聖餐禮,以及霍普拒絕穿上英格蘭教會規定的祭衣,則可說明宗教改革後儀式與服裝的問題。而伊莉莎白女王的侍女霍爾德,因穿著過於華麗而被女王指責,代表服飾法與社會階層變動的關係。最後,想像的個體──「裸體英格蘭人」,因被多樣的異國服飾誘惑,無所適從以致裸露身軀,以此形象為基礎進一步呈現服飾與英格蘭國族認同的關聯。 《「身體的身體」》書中的歷史實例或想像,都代表歐洲近代早期各類劇烈的變動,包括一統教會的解體、國家內部與國際間的戰爭、財富的流動、社會身分的變化、印刷品的流通,以及人口的地理移動,都使得此時代瀰漫焦慮的氛圍。自古以來即與身分、社會秩序密不可分的服飾,在此時期也因各樣變動而逐漸喪失身分區隔的功能。不論是貴族或新興階級,皆致力以最新、最醒目的時尚,塑造個人新形象;時尚不但成為人們回應時代變動的手段,更成為經濟思想與政治論述的核心議題。
