Synopsis

Countess Madelaine is being courted by poet Olivier and musician Flamand, but cannot make her mind up between them. Her brother the Count is in love with Olivier's former mistress, Clairon, opposite whom he is to star in a play commissioned for the Countess' birthday. The Countess' indecision over her rival courtiers reflects the debate between the importance of music and words in opera. Performances from Kiri Te Kanawa, Troyanos, Hagegard, Braun, Kuebler, Keenlyside, and the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.
