CD4927 Bizet DOCTEUR MIRACLE 1975 (Eda-Pierre, Corazza, Massard, Guitton c Amaducci)�

BIZET - LE DOCTEUR MIRACLE

It was Bizet's first opera - though in truth an op�ra-comique. Composed for a competition sponsored by Offenbach (and judged by Auber, Gounod, Hal�vy, Scribe and Thomas), it tied for first prize and was staged in 1857. It would be unrealistic to call it a masterwork; it is a buoyant demonstration of the composer's control of his craft and understanding of the genre. Had Bizet not gone on to write Carmen, it would no doubt have suffered the ignominious fate of its co-winner, Lecoq's setting of the same text, and vanished after its first season of eleven performances.

Instead, it has been revived and recorded at least twice: in 1973 and here, without dialogue, in 1975 under Bruno Amaducci. The Laurette is Christiane Eda-Pierre, the Doctor (also Pasquin and Captain Silvio) is R�my Corazza, with Robert Massard as the Mayor and Lyliane Guitton as V�ronique (Laurette's parents). At about 45 minutes, it should be taken for the light confection that it is, not as a foretoken of the greatness to come.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
