Note:

Full title as it appears on the title page: "Der Wasserträger (Les deux journées): Oper in drei Aufzügen in Musik gesetzt von L. Cherubini."


According to Stephen C. Willis (Oxford Music), Bouilly claimed that his libretto was based on a historical incident during the Reign of Terror following the French Revolution. He adapted the plot to a similar event that occurred in 1647 during the Franco-Spanish civil war.
