Catalogue Number: 08P042
Description: The 18-year-old Bizet's first stage work to be performed is an hour-long operetta in the classic French style whose centerpiece is an "Omelette Quartet" whose solemn and mock-heroic invocations to a badly cooked egg dish are a nice satire of prevailing Italo-Franch grand opera traditions. French-English libretto. Marie-Bénédicte Souquet (soprano), Isabelle Druet (mezzo), Jérôme Billy (tenor), Pierre-Yves Pruvot (baritone), Orchestre Lyrique de Région Avignon Provence; Samuel Jean.
