The première of Les Barbares, in Paris at the Académie Nationale de Musique on October 23, 1901, was a great success. "Live oxen were brought on stage in an ensemble and gave the management many problems of housing and feeding during performances." Debussy famously criticized the opera as being a vehicle unworthy of the composer's talents. Brian Rees: Camille Saint-Saëns, p. 348. Item #23099
