About

Giacomo Meyerbeer was one of the most significant opera composers of all time. The four grand operas represented here brought him his greatest fame, with Les Huguenots being one of the most performed of all operas.

Meyerbeer’s contributions to the French tradition of opéra-ballet acquired legendary status, including the ghostly 'Ballet of the Nuns' from Robert le Diable, the exotic orchestral colour of the 'Marche indienne' in L’Africaine, and the virtuoso 'Ballet of the Skaters' from Le Prophète in which the dancers famously glide over the stage using roller skates.
