His most famous work was the historical "rescue opera", Richard Coeur-de-lion , which achieved international popularity, reaching London in and Boston in The answer was to import a leading figure from abroad.
Christoph Willibald von Gluck , a German, was already famous for his reforms of Italian opera, which had replaced the old opera seria with a much more dramatic and direct style of music theatre, beginning with Orfeo ed Euridice in Gluck admired French opera and had absorbed the lessons of both Rameau and Rousseau.
The premiere sparked a huge controversy, almost a war, such as had not been seen in the city since the Querelle des Bouffons. On 2 August , the French version of Orfeo ed Euridice was performed, with the title role transposed from the castrato to the haute-contre, according to the French preference for high tenor voices which had ruled since the days of Lully.
After the failure of the last named opera, Gluck left Paris and retired from composing. The French Revolution of was a cultural watershed. What was left of the old tradition of Lully and Rameau was finally swept away, to be rediscovered only in the twentieth century. Lodoiska was a " rescue opera " set in Poland, in which the imprisoned heroine is freed and her oppressor overthrown. Theatres had proliferated during the s, but when Napoleon took power, he simplified matters by effectively reducing the number of Parisian opera houses to three. All three would play a leading role over the next half-century or so.
Rossini arrived to welcome worthy of a modern media celebrity. This proved to be Rossini's final work for the stage. Ground down by the excessive workload of running a theatre and disillusioned by the failure of Tell , Rossini retired as an opera composer. Guillaume Tell might initially have been a failure but together with a work from the previous year, Auber's La muette de Portici , it ushered in a new genre which dominated the French stage for the rest of the century: grand opera.
Like Gluck, Meyerbeer was a German who had learnt his trade composing Italian opera before arriving in Paris. While Meyerbeer's popularity has faded, the fortunes of another French composer of the era have risen steeply over the past few decades.
Yet the operas of Hector Berlioz were failures in their day. Berlioz was a unique mixture of an innovative modernist and a backward-looking conservative. His taste in opera had been formed in the s, when the works of Gluck and his followers were being pushed aside in favour of Rossinian bel canto. Though Berlioz grudgingly admired some works by Rossini, he despised what he saw as the showy effects of the Italian style and longed to return opera to the dramatic truth of Gluck.
He was also a fully-fledged Romantic , keen to find new ways of musical expression. Audiences could not understand the opera's originality and musicians found its unconventional rhythms impossible to play. Twenty years later, Berlioz began writing his operatic masterpiece Les Troyens with himself rather than audiences of the day in mind.
Predictably, it failed to make the stage, at least in its complete, four-hour form. For that, it would have to wait until the second half of the twentieth century, fulfilling the composer's prophecy, "If only I could live till I am a hundred and forty, my life would become decidedly interesting". Berlioz was not the only one discontented with operatic life in Paris.

It was here in that Berlioz saw the only part of Les Troyens to be performed in his lifetime. But the Lyrique also staged the premieres of works by a rising new generation of French opera composers, led by Charles Gounod and Georges Bizet. Though not as innovative as Berlioz, these composers were receptive to new musical influences.
They also liked writing operas on literary themes. Gounod's Faust , based on the drama by Goethe , became an enormous worldwide success. Carmen is now perhaps the most famous of all French operas.
Early critics and audiences, however, were shocked by its unconventional blend of romantic passion and realism. Another figure unhappy with the Parisian operatic scene in the mid-nineteenth century was Jacques Offenbach. His little theatre the Bouffes-Parisiens , established in , put on short one-act pieces full of farce and satire. In , Offenbach tried something more ambitious.
