"[Auber] was the foremost representative of this genre in 19th-century France... In the important and more serious works of his middle creative period (L’ambassadrice, 1836; Le domino noir, 1837; Les diamants de la couronne, 1841; La part du diable, 1843; and Haydée, 1847) the solo arias gain in individuality, musical expressiveness and harmonic depth, influenced by the drame lyrique." Herbert Schneider in Grove Music Online.
