Opera concert in 3 acts
A heroic pastoral in three acts, composed on the occasion of the birth of the Duke of Burgundy, eldest son of the Dauphin and brother of Louis XVI. The shepherd Acanthus and the shepherdess Cephise have their love disturbed by the evil genie Oroes but find peace thanks to the intervention of the good fairy Zirphile. The overture has three parts : Vows of the nation, Fireworks, Fanfares. The first part depicts the wishes of the nation, the second a firework display. To take the place of a Prologue, the Musician has tried to depict in the Overture, as far as music can, the wishes of the Nation, and the public rejoicings at the news of the birth of the Prince.
