Product Notes

After her triumph with the album Offenbach Colorature (ALPHA437), Jodie Devos has chosen to follow in the footsteps of one of her compatriots, the Belgian coloratura soprano Marie Cabel (1827-85), who at the age of twenty-six scored a phenomenal success in Adolphe Adam's opéra-comique Le Bijou perdu, which she premiered in Paris. She then took on a more dramatic role in Halévy's Jaguarita l'Indienne, whose great Invocation with chorus ('À moi ma cohorte!') again hit the bullseye in a run of 124 performances over just a few months. Cabel enjoyed one hit after another, in Auber's Manon Lescaut and La Part du diable, Meyerbeer's L'Étoile du Nord and Le Pardon de Ploërmel, Victor Massé's Galathée, and Le Songe d'une nuit d'été by Ambroise Thomas, who in 1866 gave her the biggest role of her career: Philine in Mignon, based on Goethe. In partnership with the musicologists of the Palazzetto Bru Zane, who have resurrected and edited all these unjustly forgotten rarities, and Pierre Bleuse conducting the Brussels Philharmonic and the Flemish Radio Choir, Jodie Devos pays tribute to this star of the nineteenth century, whose audacity and sense of mischief she undoubtedly shares!
