La réinvention du Moyen âge sur les scènes lyriques parisiennes entre 1810 et 1830 : genèse, contours et circulation vers l’Italie et l’Allemagne d’un imaginaire français

Abstract : This thesis is rooted in the methodological framework of the history of representations. It aims to identify the literary, visual and musical features of the medievalist imaginary invented in the French opéra-comique between 1810 and 1830. The imaginary now only appears through the reflections of an evaporated sensitivity and through discontinuous hintsthat need to be reassembled.Thus the characteristics of this imaginary conditioned by the couleur locale emerge from the combination of several methods: the comparison of several opéras-comiques – taking into account their booklets, set designs and scores –, the study of the Parisian press and investigation of parodic manifestations of the medievalism in the years that followed.The methodological challenge consists in a multidisciplinary approach, which tightly binds the opéra-comique with its context. The idea that music only acquires its meaning and color in an imaginary framework underpins this approach. Among the other French medievalist aspects considered, Charles Prévost Arlincourt’s novel provide the most valuableway to clarify the lyrical imaginary.The comparison with adaptations and translations of French medievalist plots in Italy and in Germany is one of the best way to identify the characteristics of the imaginary. Thus this study does not identify a European style but rather reveals some untranslatable components in the wake of French medievalist intrigues. However, at the time when each country is seeking roots and identity, some European references emerge in the context of the lyrical medievalism.
