Notes & Reviews:

Bizet's first comic opera, Le Docteur Miracle comic opera was written for a competition organized by Offenbach - which Bizet won! Under the baton of guest conductor Samuel Jean, the Orchestre Lyrique de Region Avignon Provence & soloists present a first-rate recording. This one act opera portrays the story of an old man and his wife (who intends burying him as she has buried her four previous husbands), a girl in love with an officer who appears successively as a valet, a cook, a quack doctor... All ends well, though only after a fake poisoning attempt with an omelette!

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The performance on this recording serves the work well. All four performers inhabit their short roles, and all sing quite well. The entire production, under Samuel Jean, bubbles along as a French farce should. The packaging of this recording is exemplary. The booklet contains a French-English libretto, notes on the singers, and an excellent essay by Gerard Condé. A fine recording of a rare work!
