(p.317) 21 Fervaal
French Opera at the Fin de Siecle

Steven Huebner

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on d'Indy's opera, Fervaal. D'Indy's friends tried to flag Fervaal as a monument, the most significant French opera of its day. D'Indy's publisher Durand put out a compilation of press reviews shortly after the première, systematically removing negative comments to enhance its celebratory effect. It is argued that although d'Indy regularly vilified the commercialism surrounding the operas of a composer such as Massenet, Durand had business concerns from which even Fervaal could not escape.
