The opera was greeted with exceptional enthusiasm in Paris in 1791, during the French Revolution. The Swiss freedom fighter was already a well-known character there nearly 15 years before Schillers drama. A number of arias from Gretrys opera even survived the success of Rossinis work of the same name of 1829.
