First Edition.

In five acts to a libretto by François-Hippolyte Leroy and Henri Trianon, Ivan IV was first performed in Württemberg at Mühringen Castle in 1946; it was first performed publically in Bordeaux at the Grand Théatre on October 12, 1951.

Bizet appears to have worked intensively on Ivan IV, a libretto originally intended for Gounod, in the winter of 1862–3 in expectation of a performance at Baden-Baden... This is Bizet’s largest and longest work, conceived in the manner of Meyerbeer’s operas for a large cast and orchestra..." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online. Item #29528
