Details about Rousseau : Le Devin du village |  Associated sheet music


The pastoral opera bouffe Le Devin du village was Jean-Jacques Rousseau's first operatic success.

It was first performed in Fontainebleau on October 18, 1752.

It is a relatively short work, featuring only three characters : Colin, Colette and the devin [the Soothsayer].

The work as a whole embodies Rousseau's ideal of rusticity and simplicity.

The famous American traditional song Go Tell Aunt Rhody originated as a Gavotte composed by Jean-Jacques Rousseau for this opera.
