“DENYS LE TYRAN represents Gretry at his peak both as a forerunner of Romanticism in his use of historical subject matter and the decisive role of a single individual (he also evokes archaic qualities in his music) and as a crystallizing force in the creation of opéra-comique. A ‘revolutionary’ opera put on during the Terror, it fails in marrying conventions of the old opera-comique to a politically correct plot - which ensured the displeasure both of the public of the Terror and of the judges of the Restoration period.”
