Notes

Full title as it appears on the title page: "Le tonnelier, opéra-comique, mêlé d'ariettes. Représenté par les comédiens italiens ordinaires du roi, le 16 mars 1765."


Although "Le tonnelier" was preceded by a 1761 opéra comique bearing the the same title with both libretto and music by Audinot, Gossec's fast-paced version rendered it more popular than its predecessor.
