Fadette 1886Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Fadette

The Villars Dragoons was a successful work by a composer who is now almost entirely forgotten. Yet the libretto seems to be better structured and executed than several more familiar works by more famous composers. And Marie Roze found the role of lively and mischievous peasant girl Fadette an extremely congenial one.

The cast is taken from a surviving programme archived in Edinburgh Central Library.
