Charles Gounod
The Bloody Nun

 
A nun forced into taking her vows, murders, and a ghost haunting a ruined castle: all part of the plot of an old legend that inspired M.G. Lewis’ famous novel The Monk and Gounod’s La Nonne sanglante (The Bloody Nun), a grand opera in the French style, praised by author Théophile Gautier for its: “elevated style, the beauty of its colours and harmonic perfection”. Sadly, a newly appointed director curtailed its run at the Paris Opera in 1854 declaring that “such filth” could no longer be tolerated! The Gothic work was subsequently unfairly neglected. Today it is revived by Insula orchestra in a stage production by David Bobée.
