About the opera Robinson Crusoé

Robinson Crusoé is an opéra comique, or operetta, by Jacques Offenbach. The French libretto was written by Eugène Cormon and Hector-Jonathan Crémieux, which was loosely adapted from the novel Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, though the work owes more to British pantomime than to the book itself.
Robinson Crusoé was first staged at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart), on 23 November 1867 with Vendredi, the 'Man Friday' role, sung by Célestine Galli-Marié, later to achieve fame as the first Carmen. Despite a positive reception by the public and press, no professional theatre played the work after its premiere until 1973 at the Camden Festival. In 1983 it was staged and toured by Kent Opera; Opera della Luna's 1994 production of the work also played at Iford in 2004. Ohio Light Opera produced the work in 1996.
