One of Hervé’s most successful opéra-bouffe, it debuted in 1866 at Théâtre des Bouffes-Parisiens and skilfully mocks the heroes of the Breton cycle. Loutish, self-loving knights, and desirous, predatory damsels parry blows and weapons in irresistible skirmishes: Merlin and Mélusine, Rodomont and Roland, Totoche and Angélique move with agility in a crescendo of situations that have little, if anything, to do with the Knights, but are great fun.
