331pp, illustrations, music examples. The Paris Odeon enjoyed a brief but highly successful life during the Bourbon Restoration and its expansion of operatic repertoire through the introduction of foreign works changed the musical life of the city. This study traces the evolution of the Odeon, examining its internal administration, its relationships with composers, librettists, and the city's wider cultural life, and demonstrating how the original license, restricting the theatre to the production of established opera comique and non-French pieces, was instrumental in its success.
