2012 sees the tercentenary of the birth of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778). Part of this legacy was Rousseau’s role as a successful opera composer. His short opera Le Devin du Village was written in 1752 and became a major success, first at Fontainebleau, then on the stages of Paris and London, in a translation by Charles Burney.

Colin (tenor) and Colette (soprano) are lovers, but suspect each other of being unfaithful. After seeking advice of a village soothsayer (baritone) they trust each other again and are happily married.Conducted by Charles Peebles, UCLU Chamber Choir. This performance is conducted by Charles Peebles, UCLU Chamber Choir.
