Product description

Berlioz wrote of Halévys La Reine de Chypre (1841): Its success will at least equal that of La Juive. And Wagner added: It is in La Reine de Chypre that Halévysnew style hasappeared with themost brilliance and success. So several voices and those by no means insignificant have declared thiswork,written six yearsafter La Juive, to be its composers masterpiece.

Premiered on 22 December 1841, Halévys opera offered the limelight to Rosine Stoltz in the title role: she was the only woman in the cast, for it had been found preferable to isolate her, following her incessant disputes with the other female singers in the company. Alongside her, the tenor Gilbert Duprez shone in the role of Gérard. The story takesthe spectator on a voyage from the palaces of Venice to those of Cyprus. But despite an initial success confirmed by several translations and adaptations that appeared shortly after the first run (notably Lachners Caterina Cornaro in 1841 and Donizettis in 1843), the work gradually vanished from European opera houses
