Les vepres siciliennes, a five-act opera on a libretto by Eugene Scribe and Charles Duveyrier with music by Giuseppe Verdi, was first staged at the Paris Opera on 13th June 1855. The subject of the opera was nothing other than an adaptation of a libretto that Scribe had written some years before. At first the opera was greeted with great success, even Hector Berlioz, usually far from kind to Italian musicians, exalted the grandeur of its conception and its masterly composition. However its Parisian success was to be short lived, and after 1865 Les vepres siciliennes disappeared from the repertoire of the Opera.
