Sinfonietta de Picardie

Arriving directly from their (teenage) wedding, the young Count Gontran and his wife Hélène,
are both expecting some adult advice from their relations. Their annoyance is interrupted by
the arrival of Pausanias, Gontran’s tutor. Slightly tipsy, Pausanias explains in song “Ce vin généreux”
that the Vin de Roussillon was to blame – he had ended by drinking twelve glasses. Then Pausanias
explains although Hélène’s aunt is ready to see her, as Gontran’s grand-father is ill he can’t come
to talk to the young man, but has sent a letter instead...

The ‘opérette’ was first performed on 1 May 1879 as part of an evening’s entertainment organized
by the ‘Cercle international’ in the Boulevard des Capucines, with piano accompaniment by Chabrier
himself. It was revived in 1913 at the Théâtre des Arts conducted by Gabriel Grovlez. The 1924 Paris
production by Diaghilev, designed by Juan Gris and conducted by André Messager, had recitatives by
Darius Milhaud to replace the spoken dialogue. Milhaud also composed an aria for Hélène based on a
melody he found among Chabrier’s unpublished manuscripts Couplets de Mariette. The first performance
at the Paris Opéra-Comique, conducted by Roger Désormière, was in 1938, and it reached its 50th
performance there in April 1946. It has occasionally been revived, though sometimes with Gontran
transposed for a tenor.
