About the opera Béatrice et Bénedict

Béatrice et Bénédict (Beatrice and Benedick) is an opera in two acts by Hector Berlioz. Berlioz wrote the French libretto himself, based closely on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
Berlioz composed the score of Béatrice et Bénédict following the completion of Les Troyens in 1858. It was first performed at the Theater der Stadt, Baden-Baden on 9 August 1862. Berlioz conducted the first two performances of a German version in Weimar, where, as he wrote in his memoirs, he was "overwhelmed by all sorts of kind attention."
