"Médecin malgré lui: opéra comique de Gounod" -- caption title, written in an unidentified hand.
Charles Gounod's opéra-comique Le médecin malgré lui, with a libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, based on Molière's play, was first performed in 1858. For a revival at the Festival Français in Monte Carlo, Serge Diaghilev commissioned recitatives by Satie to replace original spoken dialogue. A final vocal octet was adapted by Georges Auric from Gounod's quintet in act three. Le médecin malgré lui, with nine "scènes nouvelles" by Satie and the final scene by Auric, was conducted by Edouard Flament at the Casino Theater, Monte Carlo, on January 5, 1924.
Also listed in finding aid for General Collection Manuscript Music Miscellany.
