About the opera Devin du Village

Le devin du village ("The Village Soothsayer") is an interméde, a one-act opera by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who also wrote the libretto.
It was first performed before the court at Fontainebleau on 18 October 1752 and at the Paris Opéra on 1 March 1753. King Louis XV loved the work so much that he offered Rousseau the great honor of a life pension. Rousseau refused the honor. However, the opera became one of the most popular of its day and brought him both wealth and fame. The opera was also performed at the wedding of the future Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.
