Lesure, p. 78.Les Huguenots was first performed at the Paris Opéra on February 29, 1836. "Meyerbeer successfully transposed the formula of a highly variegated succession of scenes connected by a well-integrated plot from the good-versus-evil morality play of Robert le diable to a historical setting that prominently features public political turmoil. In its juxtaposition of reverential Protestant victims and fanatical Catholics - both invoking the name of the Lord - the fifth act is a locus classicus for the vivid ironical contrasts characteristic of Meyerbeerian grand opera." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 24820
