Extra Information Publication History


Misc. Comments

Paris versions

The original version of the overture for Paris is scored somewhat more elaborately, and was simplified for the première; this revision is the same as was later published as the concert overture. Other changes were made prior to the first performance, such as Berlioz having to replace all of the original spoken dialogue with recitatives; the censors also objected to the portrayal of Pope Clement as a historical personnage, requiring the invention of the rôle of the cardinal.

Act I, Tableau 1 corresponds to Act I of the Weimar version.
Act I, Tableau 2 corresponds to Act II of the Weimar version.
Act II, Tableaux 1 and 2 corresponds to Act III of the Weimar version.
