  • Music in the Second Empire Theatre (MitSET)  Music in the Second Empire Theatre is a database that gives access to the repertory of op√©ra comique, op√©rette and related genres during the long Second Empire, c1848 to c1873. It inventories the works of, among others, the Op√©ra-Comique, the Th√©√Ętre des Bouffes-Parisiens, the Th√©√Ętre des Fantaisies-Parisiennes.

  • List of Paris¬†Music Drama Performances. (Complete.) This document was prepared by Mark Everist and Sarah Gutsche-Miller. It gives performance data for the four principal Parisian opera houses for the following periods:
    Op√©ra (1826-1893); Op√©ra-Comique (1825-1894); Th√©√Ętre-Italien (1801-1913); Th√©√Ętre-Lyrique (1851-1870). It brings together the data listed in the four following works:
    Soubies, Albert, Soixante-sept ans √† l’Op√©ra en une page du Si√®ge de Corinthe a La Walkyrie (1826-1893) (Paris: Fischbacher, 1893)
    Soubies, Albert, Soixante-neuf ans √† l’Op√©ra-Comique en deux pages de la premi√®re de La dame blanche √† la milli√®me de Mignon (1825-1894) (Paris: Fischbacher, 1894)
    Soubies, Albert, Le Th√©√Ętre-Italien de 1801 √† 1913 (Paris: Fischbacher, 1913)
    Soubies, Albert, Histoire du Th√©√Ętre-Lyrique (1851-1870) (Paris: Fischbacher, 1899)
    The information is presented in an Excel spreadsheet with dates along the horizontal axis and titles and other data on the vertical axis.  Each institution is on a separate worksheet, identified on the tabs at the bottom of the sheet.  Clicking on different tabs brings up data for different institutions.
    The spreadsheet is difficult to use unless a double window split is employed.  To do this, select cell B2 and then click Window>Split.  This has to be reversed when moving from one worksheet to another.
