French opera composer of the nineteenth-century, Louise Bertin’s work was closely tied to composer Hector Berlioz and author Victor Hugo. Her opera semiseria Fausto based on Goethe’s Faust premiered in 1830, but only saw few performances after negative reviews by those who thought a woman couldn’t compose an opera.
Thanks to the work of discoverers of the Palazetto Bru Zane, this rare opera, given in concert version, directed by Christophe Rousset will finally resonate in the hall of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.
