This French rarity, with a libretto inspired by the works of Sir Walter Scott, was the first opera to reach 1,000 performances by the Opéra Comique in Paris. Boieldieu was praised for this work by no less than Rossini ("You have performed a remarkable feat, that of remaining true, witty, lively and dramatic"), Weber ("No-one's written an opera of such value since the Marriage of Figaro"), and Wagner ("The finest of French culture is conveyed in this opera"). Although LA DAME BLANCHE has enjoyed popular revivals in Europe, it has not been performed in New York City in 30 years.
