"His first important operas, Le médecin de l’amour, Cendrillon and L’ivrogne corrigé, owe much to their librettos, in which Anseaume contrived a skilful mixture of vaudevilles, ariettes and vocal ensembles... Laruette belonged to the first generation of French composers of opéra comique in the sense that term assumed during the 1750s under the influence of the intermèdes performed in Paris by the Bouffons. However, he never embraced the Italian opera buffa style." Michel Noiray in Grove Music Online. Item #26737
