1759, a Scottish village, far from the continental wars, an escheated castle, haunted by a ghost, loyal but gullible farmers, a brave orphan, an amnesic but chivalrous soldier, a greedy housekeeper, a corrupt judge: here are the characters of a plot where amazing outbreaks and dramatic turns of events take turns.

Boieldieu enticed Rossini with his 26th comic opera: “You have performed a remarkable feat, that of remaining true, witty, lively and dramatic”, Weber: “No-one’s written an opera of such value since the Marriage of Figaro” and Wagner: “The finest of French culture is conveyed in this opera”. La Dame Blanche was the first show of the Opéra Comique to reach 1000 performances and it still enjoys a long-term worldwide success. Hergé even drew his inspiration from this opera when conceiving the end of Red Rackam’s Treasure.

To revive this model of its kind, these exhilarating work of art and glimmering score, Julien Leroy and Pauline Bureau take the lead of a pleiad of performers conducted by Philippe Talbot, 2017s Comte Ory. To them, comedy and virtuoso chant are the fruits of pleasure.

Comic opera in three acts, on a libretto by Eugène Scribe Inspired by Walter Scott. Created at the Opéra Comique in 1825.

Musical direction Julien Leroy • Stage direction Pauline Bureau • With Philippe Talbot, Elsa Benoit, Sophie Marin-Degor, Jérôme Boutillier, Aude Extrémo, Yann Beuron, Yoann Dubruque • Choir Les éléments • Orchestre National d’Île-de-France
