Chabrier’s masterpiece, the opera Le Roi malgre lui (The King in spite of himself), was first performed in 1887, Rene Dumesnil enthused: "What music! What originality, what ability to express something new, what refreshing parody!His orchestration is as skilful as Wagner’s, only impregnated with light".
