Not until 1855 did Verdi have a chance to try his hand at French grand opera. A setting of a libretto by Eugene Scribe, Les Vepres siciliennes proved a success in Paris despite its problematic subject matter: the Sicilian uprising against occupying french forces in Palermo in 1282. Today, the opera is usually given in the Italian version of 1861 as I Vespri Siciliani.
