Cast and Program Information 
Edouard Lalo (b. Lille 1823 - d. Paris 1892) spent his entire life seeking suitable models for a renewal of French music, drawing generally on Romanticism and on German instrumental music. Success in this came late to him, in 1873, when the great Basque violinist Pablo de Sarasate performed - and firmly established in the repertory -Lalo’s Violin Concerto in F, op. 20, written by Lalo expressly for him. 

In 1888, a 65-year-old Lalo, unconcerned with the horrid precedent of the Namouna disaster, set his hand to an opera for the second time - and this time, fortune finally smiled on him. Despite a mediocre staging, the premiere of Le Roi d’Ys at the Opéra-Comique on May 7, 1888 was greeted with a warm reception that no one in the French music world could have expected. The initial unexpected success did not diminish with time: by 1940, the opera had already seen more than 400 performances between the Opéra-Comique and the Opéra. 

Le Roi d’Ys is based on an ancient Breton legend; even the choice of a subject based on legend illustrates the ideological link between Lalo’s opera and the Wagnerianism so prevalent throughout Europe at the time. Lalo furthermore made use of various elements of popular music inspired by Breton folklore that give the entire score a special character and flavour. Another link to Wagner lies in his use of leitmotifs associated with each of the principal characters (Rozenn, Karnac, and Margared), though Lalo is quite prudent in his use of these. Even so, Le Roi d’Ys certainly remains a profoundly and decidedly French opera in all of its main features. 

Blau’s libretto has the virtue of being ”simple, clear, uncluttered by historical complications, easy to understand, and sufficiently rich in dramatic strands”, in the words of Lalo’s first biographer Georges Servières in his brief though pithy monograph on the composer. The first version of the score was completed in 1881, but in 1886, Lalo decided to rewrite it completely. It is impossible to know what changes he made, since the first version of the opera was destroyed. Lalo was not able to enjoy the success of Le Roi d’Ys for very long. Developing heart disease in 1891, he died in Paris on April 23, 1892, less than four years after the opera’s triumphant premiere.

Reviews 
This Liège production, directed by Jean-Louis Pichon, comes from Saint-Etienne. It essentially revolves around two principles: readability and sobriety. Impressing sets, with large rocks, underline the mythical subject; costumes skilfully blend medieval and 19th-century elements. (...) Patrick Davin, musical director of the Opéra de Liège, gives a dramatic and fascinating reading, underlining the romantic aspects and dark colours (wonderful the cellos!) of this rich work. At the same time, he never loses sight of the soloists, whom he accompanies with sensitivity and care. Andreas Laska - Resmusica.com 

From the point of view of the cast, the listener will not be disappointed: the singers, who pronounce French correctly (an invaluable luxury in this type of repertoire), bring great vitality to the work. If the excellent Belgian bass-baritone Werner van Mechelen (Karnac) is a definite asset, also the rest of the cast merits an applause, in particular Giuseppina Piunti (Margared), at ease in the register of her role; Sébastien Guèze (Mylio), with his attractive tenor voice; Canadian soprano Guylaine Girard in the role of Rozenn; and Eric Martin-Bonnet, who interprets a Roi d’Ys with great stage presence. Sébastien Foucart - Concerto.net
