French Opera at the Fin de Siecle

This chapter focuses on Emmanuel Chabrier. It is shown that Chabrier may be considered among the ‘conquered’, not only by Tristan and Isolde but by Wagner's entire operatic oeuvre. The 1880 Munich Tristan seems to have been a pivotal moment in Chabrier's life because shortly after returning to Paris, he left his job at the Ministry to become a career musician. The road to the production of his opera, Gwendoline, is discussed.
