"Halévy won a commanding position in the principal opera houses of Paris and unquestioned entrée to both for the rest of his life. Two grand operas, La reine de Chypre (1841) and Charles VI (1843), may be considered among Halévy's most successful achievements." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online. (Inventory #: 26224)
