This exceptional production features Gounod s largely forgotten opera Mireille. Performed at the Opéra National de Paris, it was a great triumph for conductor Marc Minkowski and attracted more than a million viewers when broadcast on French television. In 1859, the young Provençal poet Fredéric Mistral wrote Miréio, a vast epic love poem. Gounod read Mireille shortly after publication and went to Saint- Rémy de Provence to meet Mistral. Gounod was charmed by the originality of the work, the story being much less contrived than many of those on the operatic stage at the time. The opera has had a difficult career and was revised and altered several times. In 1939, Guy Ferrant and Henri Busser, disciples of Gounod, restored the work to its original five acts.
