"Parties séparées de L'Enfant prodigue. Opéra en trois actes et en vers. Paroles de MMrs ***... Représenté pour la première fois à Paris sur le Théatre Impl. de l'Opéra comique, par les Comédiens ordinaires de S. M. L'Empereur et Roi, le 23 novembre 1811... Oeuvre XXVIII" - also from Worldcat: "L'Enfant prodigue. Opéra en trois actes et en vers. Paroles de MMrs *** [i. e. François Louis Riboutté & J. M. Souriguères de Saint-Marc.] ... Œuvre xxvii,etc. [Score.]."

The latter librettist: Jean-Marie Souriguère de Saint-Marc, from VIAF.

Op.no. very clearly 28 from here.

The -full- score is available _here_! (The instruments list checked off by the specific company at the beginning of that score specifies only one bassoon, but more than one are required by the score, by the way.)
