Messager: Fortunio, opera / Alliot-Lugaz, Dran, Cachemaille, Trempont

Notes & Reviews:

"The cast of this recording is that of a highly acclaimed production at Lyon in 1987. Colette Alliot-Lugaz proves an agreeably engaging Jacqueline, with Michel Trempont typically reliable as the cuckolded Maitre Andre. I have especially enjoyed Gilles Cachemaille's lecherous Clavaroche, while Thierry Dran's Fortunio is at its best agreeably light ... let me stress that this is not another operetta by the composer of Véronique, but a genuine opera. Messager was, after all, a cultured musician, who was artistic director at the Paris Opera and Covent Garden, as well as the original conductor of Debussy's Pelleas et Mélisande." - Gramophone
