Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Chalet — a romantic opera — was a triumph in all opera houses in the 19th century, maintaining its popularity until the 1930s. Ever since: nothing. Now this agreeable comic opera has been recreated and recorded for the first time, with 3 greats, and notably the very young Jodie Devos, a Queen Elisabeth prizewinner and consecrated artiste of the year 2015 by the International Classical Music Award. This is the debut on disc of Toulon Opera, directed here by a conductor who has already graced the operas of Australia and New Zealand: Guillaume Tourniaire.

The opera company performs about Read more eight operas per season in the opera houses of Toulon, Avignon, Nice and Marseille. Read less
