Misc. Comments

Opéra comique.

comique??? according to whom? The title page of the composer-published version (the preferred reference, I'd imagine) just has "Opera" in 3 acts and prose. Where is there a reference to comic opera?. Besides, a comic version of the tragedy Romeo and Juliet seems a bit hard to stomach. Opéra-comique does, it's true, appear in several library entries- as a place of premiere/performance (the Opéra-comique de Paris) only. - ES

Please note: this work is indeed an "opéra comique" because it uses spoken dialog in between the sung numbers rather than recitative. In this sense, the term "opéra comique" has nothing to do with the nature of the plot, comic or otherwise. One should not take that generic designation as indicating that this work is a "comic version" in any way. --abz (4/18/16)
