Description:
Holograph full-score manuscript fragment of an early or intermediate version. The fragment ostensibly belongs to the last scene of act 3, but neither text nor music corresponds to the published score. It begins with Popolani's words "Est-ce vous Monseigneur," leading to a reprise of Barbe-Bleue's act 1 song "Je suis Barbe-Bleue, ô gué! Jamais veuf ne fut plus gai!" and a confrontation between Barbe Bleue and his former wives as he is trying to take back Boulotte's bridal ring.
Notated in black ink on four oblong bifolia, numbered 6 to 9. Last three pages of bifolium 9 blank, not digitized.
Abstract:
