Chabrier was a master of the sensitive and complicated art of musical comedy, a field where he can be compared in equal measure to Offenbach, Rossini and Mozart. With L'Etoile, Chabrier composed a light-hearted opera which has increasingly enjoyed revivals in recent years.
The plot is introduced by King Ouf I who offers his subjects an execution every year on his birthday. Unfortunately, the problem now arises that no crime has recently been committed which might serve as a reason for an execution. Finally, he finds a would-be victim in the young Lazuli. However, Lazuli's fate is closely linked to the king's own life . . .
