Hérold’s last opera, premiered in Paris in 1832, was also his greatest (albeit posthumous) success. It’s a delightful work from start to finish, an opera-comique after Mérimée telling the story of three women and their tangled love lives, providing a wonderful vehicle for McCreesh’s fine cast. Orchestral and choral contributions are mostly first rate, and presentation is handsome.
