Opéra Royal : Grétry : La Caravane du Caire


Opera-ballet in three acts to a libretto by Étienne Morel de Chédeville, first performed at the Théâtre Royal in Fontainebleau in 1783.

La Caravane du Caire was a triumph at its premiere in 1783, and continued to resonate through the ranks of Napoleon's army with the chorus "La Victoire est à nous !" Grétry's colourful play, with its patriotic accents, is a true hymn to France : in the sands of Egypt, the "brave Frenchman" Saint-Phar tries to free his beloved Zélime from the slave trader who is going to sell her to the Pasha, the real ogre of the fable !
