An opéra comique in one act to a libretto by Eugène Scribe and Mélesville [A.-H.-J.-Duveyrier] after Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Singspiel Jery und Bätely, Le Chalet was first performed in Paris at the Opéra-Comique (Salle de la Bourse) on September 25, 1834.
"Le chalet, [Adam's] first significant success, incorporates the music from Ariane à Naxos, the cantata written for the 1825 Prix de Rome competition, but the opera is distinguished by its freshness of invention, as indeed are all his best works. Le chalet was Adam’s most popular opera in France throughout the 19th century." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online. Item #28233
