Daniel-François-Esprit Auber (1782-1871), the most amiable French composer of the nineteenth century, came to his abilities late in life. After a stalled commercial career, he studied with Cherubini. His first works were not a success, but La Bergère Châteleine (1820), written at the age of 38, established him as an operatic composer. He then met the librettist Eugène Scribe (1791-1861), with whom he developed a working partnership, one of the most successful in musical history, that lasted until Scribe’s death. After Le Maçon (1825) and La Muette de Portici (1828), Auber’s life was filled with success. In 1829 he was appointed a member of the Institut, in 1839 Director of Concerts at Court, in 1842 Director of the Conservatoire, in 1852 Musical Director of the Imperial Chapel, and in 1861 Grand Officer of the Légion d’Honneur. Les Chaperons blancs is one of Auber’s least known operas, falling between Le Cheval de bronze (1835) and Le Domino noir (1837), two of his most famous works. The première also took place only five weeks after that of Meyerbeer’s celebrated Les Huguenots (29 February 1836) had carried all before it. Like the latter, Auber’s opera is centred around a theme of political conspiracy, although obviously observed through the lighter lens of the comique style. The tradition of the rescue opera, popular since the French Revolution, also features in the storyline, as does the motif of apparent death through soporifics so memorably used by Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet (c. 1594). The leading characters were created by two great stars of the Opéra-Comique, Jean-Baptiste-Marie Chollet and Geneviève-Aimeé-Zoé Prévost, both of whom had brought to life the leading roles in Auber’s most famous comic creation, Fra Diavolo (1830). This book presents an insight into the life and work of Auber by close examination of this little-known opera, with consideration of origins, casting, and plot, and analysis of dramaturgy, musical style, and reception history. This volume provides the vocal/piano score of Les Chaperons blancs, preceded by an introduction to the life and work of Auber, and a reading of the opera. There are examples from the score, prints from contemporary sources and other theatrical memorabilia, adding an important iconographical aspect to the general place and relevance of this work in nineteenth-century French operatic culture.

Daniel-François-Esprit Auber (1782-1871) was long considered one of the most typically French, as well as one of the most successful, of the opera composers of the 19th century. Although musically gifted, he initially chose commerce as a career, but soon realized that his future lay in music. He studied under Cherubini, and it was not long before his opéra-comique La Bergère Châteleine (1820), written at the age of 38, established him as an operatic composer. Perhaps the greatest turning point in Auber’s life was his meeting with the librettist Eugène Scribe (1791-1861), with whom he developed a long and hugely successful working partnership that only ended with Scribe’s death. La Part du Diable, first produced on 16 January 1843, proved to be one of Auber’s most popular works: 263 performances by 1881. It marks the beginning of the composer’s third creative period, characterized by a more lyrical manner, and moreover, is one of his best works, evincing a variety of effects, rhythmic combinations, finesse of orchestral detail, piquant and original harmony, verve and brio. The story, set around Madrid and Aranjuez, concerns the celebrated eighteenth-century castrato singer Farinelli (Carlo Broschi) (a travesti part), who was employed to sing in order to soothe King Ferdinand VI of Spain in his melancholia (played by Juana Rossi-Caccia). Farinelli’s sister Casilda was created by Anna Thillon; her admirer Rafaël d’Estuniga by the famous tenor Gustave Roger. The opera was long performed in Germany under the twin titles of Carlo Broschi and Des Teufels Anteil. The music of La Part du Diable is very effective in the lyrical moments, with most unusually differentiated movements in the ensembles. This book presents an insight into the life and work of Auber by close examination of one of his famous operas, with consideration of origins, casting, plot, and analysis of dramaturgy, musical style, and reception history. This volume provides the vocal/piano score of La Part du Diable, preceded by an introduction to the life and work of Auber, and a close reading of the opera. There are examples from the score, prints from the complete works of Scribe and other theatrical memorabilia, adding an important iconographical aspect to the general place and relevance of this work in nineteenth-century operatic culture.
