Dave Pipe‘s Today’s Memory
Premiere of Charles Gounod’s Faust
Originally shared by Dave Pipe
1859 – The opera Faust by Charles Gounod premiered at the Théâtre Lyrique on the Boulevard du Temple in Paris.
Faust was rejected by the Paris Opera, on the grounds that it was not sufficiently „showy”, and its appearance at the Théatre-Lyrique was delayed for a year because Adolphe d’Ennery’s drama Faust was playing at the Porte St. Martin.
