Misc. Comments

Grove Music says "Although his three operatic works L’alcade de la vega, Le colporteur, and Guise were given as comic operas at the time, it is clear that they approached the grand opera genre, which explains the notably cool reception they received from the critics, who thought it inappropriate to stage such dramatic works at the Opéra-Comique."
