Commission by Carvalho just after he took on the directorship of the Opéra Comique 1876, Cinq-Mars was "given a lavish production" there on April 5, 1877, to a libretto by Poirson and Ballet after the novel by A.V. de Vigny. "The first appearance of a new opera by as eminent a figure as Gounod attracted a flurry of attention..." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Item #28957
