"The majority of Duprato’s stage works are one-act pieces, employing few characters and much spoken dialogue... La fiancée de Corinthe (dedicated to J.-B. Faure), on the other hand, displays more breadth of conception and employs flexible and effective recitative." John Wagstaff in Grove Music Online.
