Notes & Reviews:
Massenet's 13th opera, the story of a sculptor's model and her insatiable love for a younger man, was not unlucky; it had an enthusiastic reception in 1897 and continued to be popular for years. Like many Romantic operas, it faded from view after World War I, but has been successfully revived in recent years.
