About the opera Le Cid

Le Cid is an opera in four acts and ten tableaux by Jules Massenet to a French libretto by Louis Gallet, Édouard Blau and Adolphe d'Ennery. It is based on the play of the same name by Pierre Corneille.
It was first performed by a star-studded cast at the Paris Opéra on November 30, 1885 in the presence of President Grévy, with Jean de Reszke as Rodrigue, and had been seen 150 times there by 1919 but faded from the repertory after that. While the opera itself is not in the standard operatic repertory, the ballet suite is a popular concert and recording piece which includes dances from different regions of Spain.
