L'étoile did much to establish Chabrier as a major force on the Parisian stage and his contemporary Henri Duparc praised him specifically for creating a French comic genre, both funny and musical described as something of a French Die Meistersinger.
The fanciful story is set in an imaginary kingdom and all, naturally, ends well. However, despite the slight plot line LÉtoile is something of a pivotal work, a unique example of French 19th-century light opera, orchestrated with great sophistication and flooded with gossamer wit.
This production, featuring Stephane dOustrac, Christophe Mortagne, and Helene Guilmette, is a co-production of the Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam and Francois Roussillon et Associes.
