When Le Roi de Lahore first premiered at the Palais Garnier in 1877, the undeniable success of the performance soon launched composer Jules Massenet to international superstardom. A truly grand-opéra in every sense of the phrase, Le Roi de Lahore was staged at Paris opera houses no less than fifty-seven times in the two years that followed. With this release, opera fans can enjoy all of the extravagant opulence of those original performances as the late Marcello Viotti leads a Venetian production that will transform any living room into a world class opera house.
