    AfterHuebner notes a continuing tradition of operas at Paris Giacomo Meyerbeer 'principals appear with chorus at the end of an act and where private intrigue conjoins a well-articulated public dimension in the plot' and cites amongst others Charles Gounod 's La nonne sanglanteAmbroise Thomas 's A life in letters book and operas by Jules Massenetamongst them Le roi de Lahore and Le Cid Amongst reasons often adduced for the dearth of productions in the 20th century were the scale of Meyerbeer's more ambitious works and the cost of mounting them, as well as the alleged lack of virtuoso singers capable of doing justice to Meyerbeer's demanding music.

Berlioz, Hector, tr.

    The text is woven with an historical background as to how the ideals of the French revolution were transported to Prussia under Frederick William IV r. Lind's talent was unlimited, turned round Giacomo Meyerbeer looked at me, as if a load of anxiety had been taken off his mind. He philosophically resigned himself to being a victim of his own success: his extensive diaries and correspondence — which survived the turmoil of 20th-century Europe and have now been published in eight volumes [61] — are an invaluable source for the history of music and theatre in the composer's time. This is an insightful observation as modern opera goers appear to be conservative in their tastes so reinforcing both popularity and exclusion. However, in Berlin Meyerbeer faced many problems, including the enmity of the jealous Gaspare Spontiniwho since had been Court Kapellmeister and director of the Berlin Hofoper.
